Opinion appreciated on ADA tank size...

I'm stressing over whether to get the ADA 60-P or the 60-F. I really like the shallow look of the F but it's hard to really visualize without seeing it in person. Just wanted to know which one is more popular....


Also, if I choose the size of the 60-P, chances are I might just go with the Mr. Aqua brand since it's half the price. It's my first attempt at a iwagumi style tank, so it's not like I know what I'm really know what I'm doing. LOL

It depends what style of scape you are going for. 60f looks good as iwagumi or wabi-kusa or a tank with immergent growth. The 60p can do just about everything. As for Mr. Aqua vs ADA I think it is worth it to go for the ADA, the glass clarity is great and the build quality is fantastic.

When I can't choose, I do a simple equation to find out which is of more value.
How many dollars per gallon is each? If the difference is huge, there is your answer.
