the front to back room is the most important because it allows for a better aquascape. Next to consider is height of the tank because the par reading will drop off drastically after about 20" of water meaning more light will be needed to reach the floor of the tank. Length of the tank really only matters when it comes to fish selection (more active swimmers like tangs need longer tanks).
