Shallow or long for aquascaping emergent growth
Shallow tank (such as UNS 60S or 45S) or long tank (traditional 12 gallon long dimensions) for a Medaka/ricefish (Oryzias latipes) 'biotope' tank with emergent growth?
I'm currently in the (very, very) early planning stages, and planning to model it after Shrimpery's(on Instagram) Oryzias latipes pond-style shallow, emergent tanks, and the traditional shallow pond dishes used to keep them in Japan(check out the hashtags on Instagram, it's all in Japanese but the photos and videos are awesome!) But I would like to put it on the back of my desk to enjoy while I work(weight isn't an issue, I'm building the desk) and the long tank is the only option that will fit. If the shallow would be significantly superior for aquascaping I can just put it on a stand next to the desk.
