All I've had is the standard but I would like some of the prettier looking ones eventually

For me it depends on what I'm going to stock with.

We have a 14g hex that's just a community tank, then we have standards,: 29, 10, 5.5

Then we have 40g, 80g and 120g

And a 55

i love my bowfront, so does my cousin and sister who try to trade me their 40 and 120gal tanks but........... i love long tanks (6ft) with @least a 2ft deep (as in width, not height). i like the depth to stack rocks in the middle and watch the fish be able to swim behind them and not be restricted by the glass.

I like standard tanks. I had a biOrb, and they're spherical so it made it impossible to view the actual fish. They would appear bulgy-looking and disproportionate. Especially with the African Dwarf Frogs, or bottom dwellers.

Bowfronts are nice, but I'm not sure if they would have the same affect as the biOrb.

I actually do think Hex's are cool, but only for a small Betta tank. Just too confusing for a large tank with lots of fish.

So above all, I much rather prefer standard tanks.

bowfronts have a cool look but I own one and I know from experience that they are difficult to light properly.
