A wide but short tank is a nicer look in my opinon.

Also, the braces on a cylinder run around the rim and as such cannot be trusted to hold your weight.
Second that! I just built a 1000 by 1000 by 500 cube. 20" is perfect, i can reach every part of the tank without yelling! i used to have a 30" high tank looked great, but got sick of the extra work! also insane lighting needed.
