The camera captures this beautifully. My question is this: how do you prefer to view it in person? At the height it sits in the room, I'd guess you look down into it as often as from the side. If you want to sit and look at it for 10 or 15 minutes, where do you position yourself and what view do you prefer?
The tank is in the bedroom, with the view from the bed being towards the front right corner, at head height, which is perfect. The view form my desk is from the other front corner, slightly above. And when walking into the room you see it completely from above.

For proper tank chillout time I sit right in front of it on a pillow, back against the bed with a glass of wine
