Don't like the top down only view plus you will also have to stop water movement just to see your fish and corals. If you like to see your fish and coral from top go for it.

I use them for frag tanks and sumps. I use an acrylic viewer to view corals and I feel the very best view is top down.

LOL...yeah...I'm a mad Reefer anyway....

I do have a large DT with fish in it. I spend more time in the back tanks though. I love feeding the LPS, and that's hard to do in a 25" deep tank. Those shallow bins are 12".

Yes. I would definitely use one as a display. I wouldn't have too many fish though.

Ok with coral only I understand but it will still be only certain Types like chalices and some other LPS.
