Thanks for the comment. Glad to see you have TWO tanks going. Hehe, somebody caught the virus alright. It seems that most bow front owners love their bow fronts. I wouldn’t get much reading done if I had a fish tank in the room. I applaud your focus.

This is my 36G Bowfront Tank Castle setup i currently have 19 fish and 1 Pleco and as you can see i have 2 homemade Biofilters in the back left hand corner and i have a sponge over my Aqueon 30 filter intake because i just recently had a molly die from being sucked up on it. All my fish get along great, never had a aggression problem yet. So here is a list of my fish.
7 tiny neon tetras
2 Male Gold Rams
2 German Blue Rams M&F
1 silver Molly female
2 male Balloon Mollies
1 female Platy
1 male Crowntail Betta
2 Guppies M&F
1 baby female Guppy (just past the fry stage)
1 Bristlenose Pleco

I will be adding a school of Scissortail Rasboras in the future and probably a male Platy

Tank has been up and running for about 6 months now with no issues even as heavily stocked as I have it. I am using regular pool filter sand as substrate. Typically do 5 gallon water change weekly with tap water (7.8 ph) and water conditioner. Rams and angels had to be acclimated over several hours due to the higher than typical PH but they don't seem to mind it at all.The overall design of the bow front tank will allow you to fit a volume-wise larger tank in a relatively smaller space. If you are searching for a fish tank mainly for improving the appearance of your home, look no further than the bow front type.So, we discussed quite a bit about bow front aquariums, various types of them, and various advantages and disadvantages that they possess. Now let’s take a look at some of the best offerings among bow front fish tanks.
