I must make a correction to my post with the photo......
>>My tank (the one pictured) is a 40 gallon 'long' aquarium not a 'breeder'. I was wondering about them so I called a friend who owns an aquarium shop locally. A 40 gallon long has the same dimensions as a 55 gallon except that it is shorter.
>> But a 40 gallon 'breeder' is a whole 'nother creature. They measure 36" X 18" X 17" which is perfect for mud turtles. Unfortunately, they require a different stand than the standard 55 gallon tank does and thus are more expensive to set up.
>> Both a 40 gallon long and a 40 gallon breeder cost "less than $100.00" according to my friend.

THANK YOU so much for finding out this info. It's extremely helpful for me because I misplaced my dimensions on 40 gallon breeder tanks. A friend emailed them to me a few months ago & of course I lost the paper I wrote it down on lol.

This is perfect because my 55 gallon is now set up on the top part of this new stand that is built for 55g tanks.
The fabulous thing is that there is a shelf built onto the bottom of the stand that is 46 inches long & low enough that a 40g breeder will fit perfectly under the 55g tank.
The old homemade stand was built like bunk beds with the mud living on the top "bunk" & the painted on the bottom. With this new stand all we have to do is switch places for them.. it'll work out perfectly to get that 40g breeder!
The room looks so much better too without that huge clunky & ugly homemade turtle stand.
Thanks again!
