Naw i wasn't really worried about being flamed. Was more of a joke than anything. I have submitted my DIY thread, will post more to it once it's approved.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The fish you can put into a rectangular tank aren't necessarily the same ones you'll put in a hex tank.

I agree. I am planning on putting this tank on my desk, so that was part of the reason that i chose a hex shape. I will likely build a nice big rectangle tank after i am done with this one to go in my living room or in the man cave (depending on where the wife lets me put it).

Very cool. I am moving into my new house this weekend so I am getting excited to get my tank setup and cycling. I am just waiting for a new pump and some filter media in the mail then I can get it cycling.

If you wanna see some pictures of the build process of my tank I have another thread in the DIY forum as I am building mine from scrach.

I think, like a lot of people, hexes are probably annoying due to not being able to reach the bottom to scape and plant, and the fish not having room to move laterally. But, I think a shorter, squattier hex would be interesting and cool if they were ever to make them (though that would be a bugger for taking up space).
