That is a good point about photos! I have a 12gal Eclipse that has a very slight bowfront and I can't get a decent pic to save my life in that tank. Don't know if that would be an issue in a larger tank or not.

I've gotten some decent pics in my 7 gal bowfront, but only when the fish was close to the glass. (see my gallery - cory melanistius, ramshorn snail, and albino ancistrus). One thing I noticed is that the autofocus doesn't work at all with the bowfront - I think it keeps trying to focus on the curved outer glass surface. Nearly all my photos are taken with manual focus.
