What's better tank size for a reef...

a 120 gal 48x24x24, or a 125 gal 72x18x22? I've narrowed down my choices to one of those two tanks. I've read a lot of posts about having a deep (width wise, not vertical) tank, but that extra two feet of viewing area sounds appealing to me. So, any opinions from the experts would be greatly appreciated!

I'd go with the 125 as well. More floor space for coral placement. Also, any fish you add will like the added feet of swimming area.
