 Ok so I just saw this on Instagram yesterday. Had a hard time finding the standard tank so I was looking around and found a tank that is a peninsula style tank with a semicircle on the end. Measures 11.3x6.2x9.5 

I think it qualifies and plan on using an old fluvel 20 I have. 

I'm pretty close on all the dimensions but understand if it dosen't qualify.

Welcome to the community! This is within the range of dimensions, but I'd really prefer a rectangular footprint. If this is truly your best option though, I won't exclude you from participating with this as your tank. It sounds like you're planning to use just the tank only, and not the filter, right?

Any heater recommendations for the back chamber of an AC50?

If you saw my journal you proabably know why I'm asking here...

 

I'll be using an Inkbird as well with it. Which is the best model for tanks?

I've been using 50 watt Tetra & it's keeping my temp steady at 78°, even without being hooked up to my inkbird.

The temp inside my house has been anywhere from 68-74 the whole time too.

@Christopher Marks that is correct I'll be using a fluvel 20 hob which is the same as an aqueon 20. I'm still looking for the glass ot a similar one In my area as of right now so this is my backup

The topfin 2.5 is an all in one, which is not qualified. Also the dimensions are not allowed.

Standard 2.5 tanks or ones with similar dimensions are the only tanks allowed.
