What would this type of tank be called?

Have room in between two windows and that's it. So I was wondering if I could get a super tall but narrow fish tank. Hopefully 55 gallon+. And how heavy would this be?

It really depends on what kind of tank it is, what kind of stand, substrate, decor. Water alone your looking at roughly 458lbs

Thanks.... Would a saltwater setup work for this or should I just make it in my basement and have it long?

My main concern with a really tall tank would be being able to reach the bottom. I think anything taller than your arm is long would be nearly impossible without going for a swim!

Yeah, my 58 gallon tank is 30 inches long and 18 inches deep, but it's still two feet tall! For that much water to be in a narrower tank it would be very very tall! I can barely reach the bottom of my two foot tall tank.
