Curved tank Question

Hi I have a 36" curved tank and would really like to have a go at an iwagumi style aquascape, I was wondering if a curved tank would be suitable for this? Or if any 1 had any experience with an iwagumi using a curved tank.
I have got 3wpg lighting and will be using Co2 but am unsure if the dimensions of a curved tank will work with an iwagumi layout.
Any feedback would be gratefully appreciated.

Help me out here, by "curved" do you mean a tank with a bowed front?
I've had a 46g bow and currently a 72 gallon bow. The foot print allows you to place a larger / more prominent piece in the center and still have room for the fish to swim around.

I don't really 'scape'.... I just stick stuff in there and I'm plenty happy when it grows!

Iwagumi style would work in any container of water. It's just a style of aquascape. In the end it's just how you want to put an aquascape together in a tank you want.
