Advatages/disadvantages to a tall aquarium?
So, the space available for my future aquarium purchase is limited to 33 inches wide. I was looking at a standard 30 inches wide and 18.75 inches tall 29 gallon aquarium, but then realized I could get a 37 gallon aquarium thats also 30 inches wide, but 22 inches tall, or even a 56 gallon aquarium thats 31 inches wide and 28 inches tall. Is there a big disadvantage to having a tank that deep? I know it might cleaning the gravel during a water change a little more difficult... but would it make a difference in the type of fish I could get?
