    I love pbass, they are my absolute favorite fish, but my largest tank is only a 150(18" wide) so I haven't kept one until adulthood. Since I sold my baby bass a while ago I've been thinking about my future in pbass keeping :naughty: I want to plan a tank for some pbass but would like to know what dimensions I should be looking for in a pbass tank. Is 30" wide enough? I don't really like very tall tanks. Would 26" tall be sufficient for them? What is a minimum length? I'm not really sure what kind of pbass I want to keep, but I do know I for sure want tems and azuls :drool: Any advice for a pbass noob? Thanks guys!
