      Hey bud that is normal lighting. Itz the exposure that i used on the phone. I use reef lighting on the aquarium so its full spectrum output.

      The probability of hitting a wall of a cylinder at normal angle, or close to it, is not zero. The damage we worry about is greatly reduced in a cylinder versus rectangle but not eliminated. An inflatable soft wall pool would probably eliminate it.

      The reason they spook is because of being scared by someone or something coming up in front of them or if they get spooked while sleeping. The tank im getting eliminates the possibility if getting scared by someone walking up on it and no shadows appear thru the walls. It will have plenty of room to swim around and dart around for a good while. I'll take my chances on a round tank instead of a square tank any day as far as nose bruising goes.
