    One disadvantage of shallow tank is that the temperature fluctuates significantly because of the wider surface area. This applies on extreme cold or hot weather. More Surface Area more Gas Exchange and more temperature transfer.

    Awesome article! I think this has swayed my vote towards shorter/wider tanks.
