Open topped aquaria:

Easy access
Elegant simplicity
Potential for emersed driftwood designs and emersed plant growth
Does not trap heat in the system in the summer therefore is cooler

Not suitable for flying fish ;-)
Not suitable with young unruly children about ;-)
Allows for increased evaporation and requires frequent top ups
Best with suspended light source

The classic American style of "built-in" aquarium with wood canopies and stands does not appeal to me. I prefer the simple approach of a "glass garden" in which the water and plants are the sole focus.
