    Wife really likes bowfronts. We're going to get new flooring soon, and I'll need to move my ,90, so looking for a replacement tank. Would love to find a 90 to 100 gallon bowfront.

    I had a 90 bowfront years ago but it freaks me out every time when dogs run through the house and I watched the tank rattle. Always afraid it would topple over. Would not get it again....

    I'll be replacing the flooring to waterproof plank vinyl so should be pretty stable.

    It makes me too nervous looking at it so I couldn't bring myself to get another one ever.

    There’s a 72, 90, 155 and 180. I’m looking for either of the 2 bigger ones but they’re not made anymore so it’s not easy. I think the 72 is the only you could buy new now without finding a custom shop

    Does planet make bow fronts? I have a small planet aquarium, and really like the build quality although it isn't wet yet.
