I'd say fish were meant to NOT be in ANY tank, so... My answer would echo my friend above...

"Is ANY tank natural?"

It is natural to prefer either organic or geometrical forms in one's approach to art appreciation. Tanks are all design and I agree with you, the octogon tanks are unsightly and bizarre to my eye.

I prefer corner tanks to and other, with rounded or bow front acrylic

I've always been fond of ponds and creeks outside. So my tanks are as heavily planted and natural as I can manage. I use whatever is cheapest or available tank wise. Acrylic is nicer to work with than glass, which I find distorts my depth perception and adds to the straight lines which I find less visible in rounded corner tanks like some acrylics have

Actually my all time favorite tank is at the Monterey Bay aquarium, it's a circular room about 10 across and once you walk in and look above there is a 360 degree tank full of thousands of schooling sardines. Sweeeeet!!

This is a link, it's full of anchovies not sardines!

Search for Monterey 360 anchovies for still shots. I remember standing in there as a little kid, it's just as fun now!
