Hi,

I've 2 aqua's.
One of 2 m * 0.6 m * 0.6 m and
one of 1.5 m * 1.1m * 0.6 m
(being L * D * H )

One of the two will be a pleco tank, the other will be planted. (hopefully as succesful as james)

first I thought I would take the 2 m tank as planted one. But on second thought has the 1.5 m * 1.1 m not much more potential for aquascaping ??
Although not sure how I should arrange/manage such a deep (1.1m) planted tank.

I think you'll be a lot happier with the 2m tank; the shallower depth will make lighting it much easier and give you a lot more aquascaping options (it will also be a lot easier to work in!).

P.S. Just looked at your post again, and now I'm confused; did you mean the 2m tank was 1.1m deep (from top to bottom), or wide (from front to back)?

hmm, my fault. wide <-> dept <-> height

the 2 m tank is regular size so it 60 cm wide and the water is 60 cm deep (If the pleco's go in this one, I'll order a 200*70*70, still have to buy the tanks)

The other tank is also 60 cm deep (waterdept) just as the first one, but has a length of 150 cm and is 110 cm wide. So it's more or the less a square (with much imagination ) (can't change the dimensions of this one because his place has fixed measurements)

hope this is more meaningful

I agree with Vicki, the top tank would be better used for plants for all the reasons she's already said.
