Hello all. I have a problem with my 7 year old Florida soft-shell. I'm sure all of you are aware of how these little creatures grow, but I was misinformed at the pet store. My baby is the size of a bambino pizza now and I need a new tank. What I have now is a 55 gallon. I've been looking around, but the biggest size I can find is 55. Where can I find something bigger. I love my baby and won't get rid of it, not in a million years, but right now his home is too tight. What do others do with this problem. Please help.

Most feed stores have large capacity watering troughs that get much bigger than any fish tank. Alternately, if there is a water garden supply store in your area, you can get very large sculpted "ponds", or just buy a pond liner and make your own tankout of any convenient frame.

There are lots of aquaria larger than 55's, but they're pricey. May I suggest you look into galvanized stock troughs. Add a couple coats of polyurethane enamel to seal it.

But if you really want an aquarium, watch the classified ads in the newspaper and your local shopper. I see big tanks 160s, 210s, etc., up for sale pretty cheap quite often.
