Can you be a bit more specific?

I thinly bow fronts a very nice but I prefer a tank without a distorted view.

Is that what you mean?

It's cool, I think a flat would look way better built in a wall then a bowfront, just my .02 cents

The bow hanging out would look very neat but there could be a support issue there

Understood . But I don't thing it's that much of a overhang that would call for concern.

Yes that would work. I would go for a 55g incase of a power outage so your house doesn't flood
