Where are the four foot tanks?

Has anyone started a thread for a 33g or 40g LONG on RC? I've searched the site but nothing promising ever materialized. I love the look of these skinny tanks and want to start a build but no one seems to be running them.

I am about to fill my 33 long up.

I will post pics once I do. Its going to be my macro algae display/scooter blenny tank.

Btw, i think the 33g long is the ultimate nano tank. It is far superior to the 20g long. Its a 4ft tank, and with 4x54w quality T5 lamps, you could literally grow anything for cheap. You could get away with 2x54w for lower light stuff. Its long enough to include some non-nano fish.

I want to set up another 33 long as a bare bottom reef.

i was actually in the works of setting up a 33 long....had a stand and everything for it.....and a day before making the order for the tank....someone from my local club posted a 46bowfront for sale....and it was too much of a steal, that if i didnt take it, i would have regretted it......it was a full setup for a cheaper price than what a 33 would have costed......i still plan on setting up a 33 in my bedroom, but after i take down the 20

I am thinking about setting up a 33L (48x12x12). It would be great to see someone with one setup post of pics. I am really surprised more people don't have them for nanos.

I have a 33 long. Sometimes I wish I had a 55 instead for the added height, but I love everything else about it. And the lack of height isn't all that bad. With my light, I can have pretty much any coral I want. The light's only like 12 inches from the sandbed.

Only a clownfish at the moment. I had a midas blenny, but he jumped the other day. I'm trying to decide what else to add.

Besides fish, two peppermint shrimp, a cleaner shrimp, emerald crab, snails and hermit crabs. As far as corals, ricordea, zoanthids, toadstool leather, monti caps, birdsnest, table acro. I think that's everything. I just started with SPS (besides the caps), so all I have are tiny frags.

lat0403, can you tell me some more about your setup (Skimmer, sump, etc...)? Also, I am considering T5's for mine but i am worried 4x54w would melt any LPS I want to keep.
