I am about to order a custom made tank 6' long and 2' deep, to fit the stand I already have, and notice that Dianna Walstad recommends a maximum height of 18". I can't see the reason for this and was going for 24" can anyone advise me please?
The problem with deeper is that you need more light. If you are happy to provide more light and pay the electricity bills then deeper is fine. I have been keeping 2.5' deep (high) planted tanks for decades without problems, but I do use metal halides for lighting. For your size of tank I would go higher than 18" because 2' would look much better IMO. Good luck with it.
