For the gallon difference would it be better to go with the 30 gal and add the additional length to the tank?
Most of the fish that I've dealt with swim back and forth and not up and down. Thats one reason why my tank is 8' long and not that tall. You have more room for them to hide out in the aquascaping. I'd go with the longer one.
