I will be downsizing my current cad lights 50 cube in the near future and have a few tanks laying around. I'm keeping the artisan stand and using a glass holes overflow. My tank options are an ADA 60f, cadlights 15 gallon zen and aquatop 14" cube. What tank would you go with? Help me make up my mind

I was looking at the 60f for a planted tank and IMO its just too shallow. I ended up going with the 10 gallon Cadlights Zen series. I dislike cube tanks so I wouldn't do a 14" cube but since you already have a cube that may be your preference.

All three tanks have their upsides but each has a downfall as well. The zen already has a glass top which is a necessity since one of my cats insists on using the top as a bed lol. If it were 24x13x13, it would be the tank I use. I love the ADA 60f footprint but wish it were 2 inches taller for overall volume. The cube...well, it's a cube. They look great if done right, which I'm not very good at doing. The gf, being a freshwater girl, voted the zen.

60f is totally sexy. Put in a single snowflake clown and a couple gobies (a clown goby and a watchman/pistol pair) that would be a totally bad ass tank.

Ok...the cube is out. Going to use that as a planter next to the aquarium stand like I originally intended. Probably do some rocks cape mock ups to see what I like better

You can also always have some acrylic cut as a top. Its not too expensive. I just paid $26 for my 85 gallon. Granted its thin because i don't have a cat sitting on it. But the thicker stuff shouldn't break the bank on a small tank.

The zen is 20x13x13. This is the tank I'm leaning towards because of the overall volume but damn, I hate having this 60f sitting around waiting on me to fill it up
