Great sketches! I really believe in whatever you think looks best, is best, and yes naturally there are certain ratios we find appealing. The "Golden Ratio" is from the Fibonacci sequence, which goes 1,1,2,3,5,8,13... etc adding the previous two numbers together to make the next in the pattern. These ratios are found throughout nature, and thus the natural way is the appealing way usually. I personally just did a ten gallon (someday would love to do a 180 :) ) and redid the scape multiple times until just yesterday I think I finally settled into something I like.
So IMO I'd play around (sketches are a great way to do it) and find something you like.
Sorry for the rant, but hopefully things work out!
