I've been thinking of starting up a brackish planted tank.I'm definitely getting a 50 gal. I just don't know if I would rather have a 50 bow or a 50 long. Any pros and cons would be appreciated.

I would be inclined to choose longer tank.
Larger surface area for oxygen exchange at surface and can add a few more fishes than bow front or cube style aquariums.
Have heard that flounder's need tank twice the width of adult size, and longer by twice the fishes adult length.Plenty of filtration is also suggested.
Is said they seldom do well for long otherwise.
