State of the art is incorporated into every design specific to the needs of the livestock to ensure longevity and health of the specific aquarium.

Aquarium tanks come in many shapes these days besides standard rectangular tanks and round fish bowls. Most unusually shaped tanks are made of acrylic, as the material is relatively easy to mould geometrically shaped tanks with straight sides (e.g. hexagons) can be made of glass, as the edges can be silicone-sealed. However, these edges may interrupt your view of the fish.
Correct Tank=Correct Fish
Even if the volume is sufficient, odd-shaped tanks may not provide as much swimming space as a standard, long rectangular tank. Fish need room to dart about and turn in like any other pet does. Tall and narrow tanks are not as kind to them as longer ones.
