That looks pretty cool

I had a FW corner aquarium years ago that was right around 45g too, but had three distinct front sides to it, not rounded like that. I much prefer the rounded shape of yours! I enjoyed, it definitely saved a little space, but gave some kinda weird viewing angles.

Do you open those blinds much on the windows right behind it? Do you think that might cause problems with algae build up from too much sunlight though?

Okay, cool. Shouldn't be a problem though.

Figuring out stocking for a new tank is always a challenge, but at least it's a fun challenge!
