360* veiwable-harder to maintain?

Anyone here maintain a 360* planted tank? In your opinion how much more difficult is it to maintain than a standard front and sides aquarium?

It will be a little more of a challenge to aquascape, but I think as long as you get the right equipment from the start, you will be fine.

It's a tank that is viewable from all sides instead of just the front and sides. For example, a tank that is used as a divider in the middle of a room rather than against a wall.

A 360 would be the worst case room divider- essentially more like a tank set up like a kitchen island. There's a round tank at an LFS near here that has the equipment plumbed through the bottom into the middle. That's doable if you want to go with a sump and an overflow in a central "island". Expect to spend $$$. Major DIY skillz required, I would think.

Just my .02. I wouldn't attempt anything more challenging than a room divider tank built into a wall, and even that ain't happening for me.
