This may not be suitable for the room you are thinking about, but it's an idea...
My brother works in a care home with some folk with pretty challenging behaviour, and he wanted to set up a tank for them to look at, but was worried about the obvious breakage problem. The solution was to place the tank in the (disused) fireplace and put a sheet of thick perspex in front of the tank to absorb any blows. So far it's worked well, the fish have got used to the occasional loud shouts, and the folks have learnt to sit and watch the tank, it really seems to calm them down.
Obviously this only works if you have a fireplace that fits your tank and is in the room that you want a tank in, but when set up neatly it makes for a really nice flush to the wall feature tank!
Just a thought!
