    currently running a Juwel Vision 260, looking for something alittle bigger.
    considering having one made-up, problem is, cannot decide on what size to go for.
    options: 1200x600x600....1000x800x600....1200x700x600.....850x850x600
    any ideas/suggestions/advise?

    the bigger the better
    as you will want to go bigger in the long run
    also bigger water volume easier to maintain

    A wider tank is better for scaping. So from your top list. The 1000 X 800 X 600 would be best, then the 1200 X 700 X 600. Maybe do a 1200 X 800 X 600.

    Ditto! My current tank is this size. The width really helps when it comes to scaping.

    yes, i`ve seen that size in a LPS at the gateway(show tank), like the size, but always thought it made a good island set-up as apposed to a tank against the wall.
