I'm not really sure what to suggest, but I'm excited for your new tank!!! I've ALWAYS wondered about lighting on corner tanks - simply because it seems as if you'd end up with more dark areas (relatively speaking) than on a standard rectangular tank. Unless you suspended the lighting. Are you planning to do a tank journal for this setup? If you DO, please share a link once you get it going! I'd love to see! So do you have it home, tested and all that fun stuff? *GRINS* 3 cheers for new (CORNER!) tanks!
Nice talking to you.. Measured the corner tank I have sitting empty..it was sold as 39 gallon..its 21 inches tall and 24 inches radius(both "legs"24in. and radius 24 as well, so I'm thinking the 55 I will get this weekend will be a couple inches bigger all around..didn't look overtall. Lighting,..I'm definitely open to suggestions..Probably some T-5 single for first try..
