Tall Octagonal tank

Post by Tycho » Fri Nov 22, 2019 12:12 pm

Does anyone have any experience of the tall octagonal tanks?

I might well be wrong but I've never been a fan as in my mind fish are better off with longer thanks rather than tall tanks?

Yes, they're really only any good for snails, shrimp or very small fish.

Thanks... that exactly what I thought... a friend of a friend was trying sell me one.

It was cheap but I've never liked the idea of them.

As long as you don't keep any fish in them, they can make a nice light feature with bubbles and coloured lights :)
