Hi there!

I was wondering about if the dimensions of an aquarium has any effect on the fish...
I've built an aquarium which is (sorry to use metric values!) 0.13 x 0.6 x 1.2 meters.
I've had the tank up and running for almost 3 months, and the fishes seem to be very much satisfied with their surroundings... I've heard that the shape of 'ordinary' aquariums (tall and cube shaped) is mainly because of esthetics, and that my aquarium will be more natural to the fishes...
In addition to this i've got sand instead of small stones at the bottom. May this be harmful in any way? The fishes seem to like it, but any longterm illnesses i should expect....?
