Ilike the top one better - is that the corner bowfront? What kid of light do you have up there? The corner bowfronts are easy to scape - they look so awesome. But, hard to light!!

I prefer the bottom, it draws my eye to the center of the tank

Yes, its a corner bowfront. You cannot see it well in the pic but I have two light fixtures above the tank in order to achieve more even light distribution. I have 96W T5HO lighting (24W per bulb). My light types are: 1 10k daylight, 1 full spectrum, 1 actinic-3 and 1 6700K.
