A because it'll look better. you don't want the 2 front edges of your tank looking different.
I am trying to create a tank that has a 360 degree view. I want a tank with no obvious front and sides. Its going to sit on the front edge of my office desk with all the plumbing going through the bottom of the tank.
Here is my inspiration:
So even if the edges of each side look different, the tank will be symetrical as a whole. I am leaning towards figure B for that reason. I just wanted to make sure there was no mechanical reason for not doing it.
You may be right, and it may very well look funny when I'm done, but at this size tank we are not talking a lot of $$s, so why not. I have always wanted to do things differently, and who knows, it might look really good.
If its really bad, I'll just make a new one like Figure A and move on. I just didn't want to spend time on something that was going to fail simply by design.
I mocked up a tank with paper and wire last night and have started playing around with scaping ideas. It was a good exercise because it provides me an idea of the scale I am creating. Now I need to search the LFSs and go on a few hikes to find stuff to put in it.
I have two competing ideas. Japanese Garden inspired, or Iwugami inspired. It just depends on the hard scape pieces I can find.
