Just wondering..?

What are column or tall narrow tanks good for. Ive seen tanks that are like 18x18 x24 and a 20 gallon tall on craigslist. What fish would be happy in a tank that is like this??

They are good for if you have limited room for a tank then the extra height will give extra water volume for more stable parameters yet keeping the small footprint. For tall tanks I'd stock according to the footprint and not total volume for example I would stock a 20 extra high as if it was a 10 gallon tank since the footprint is the same.
