The aquarium tank comes in various sizes, shapes and capacities. The original design and still the most commonly shaped tank are the rectangular shaped aquarium and the round glass bowl. Initially, the aquariums were constructed from glass only. Today, you can find them made from materials such as plexi-glass and acrylic and can be pentagon, octagon or hexagon shaped. Tanks can also be custom made.
There is a growing trend for the more unique designed aquarium tank, such as the coffee table and bar table tanks; also the tower shaped tank is increasing in popularity due to its smaller area space. The demand for them will also depend on the water capacity. For home, you will find that aquarium tanks with a capacity ranging from 10 gallons to 60 gallons to be sufficient, while for offices or other industrial locations the tanks can be 100 gallons or more. Make sure that the aquarium you do ultimately decide on will fit suitably in your room.
There are many popular shapes for aquariums including rectangle, hexagon, cylinder, bow, cube, pentagon, triangle, corner and many more.
