A fish tank or aquarium that has corners is perfect for people who wish to have a fish tank in their home, but realize that it can often be far less practical than they first anticipated. Let’s be honest: a good sized fish tank is probably gonna take up a fair amount of room in your home, especially if it’s more than 50 gallons! And ensuring that your fish have plenty of room is a key aspect of keeping them happy and healthy. So what’s the solution? Well, a corner fish tank can be the ideal solution to this often frustrating scenario, and can allow you to have an aquarium without sacrificing space around your home. But that doesn’t mean to say that these tanks are only good for saving space. In fact, they can be just as stylish and safe as a regular fish tank or aquarium, as you’ll see from the list below. Plus, we’ve included a few fish tank cabinets & stands (just for good measure!).
We’ve also broken this post up into small, medium and large corner fish tank/aquarium sizes to make it simple for you to find what you’re looking for.

Small Corner Fish Tanks & Aquariums (10 Gallons and less)
Top Fin Fishy Betta Corner Fish Tank (0.5 Gallon)
Our first corner fish tank is a very small one. At only 0.5 gallon, it’s really only suitable for smaller fish, hence the name (Betta fish are a small species). The tank is a fairly simple ‘no frills’ aquarium, but can still be suitable for any fish keeper with small fish. We would only recommend keeping a fish in this tank during a water change!
Aquaview Corner Aquarium (2.5 Gallons)
The Aquaview is a compact and stylish solution to keeping fish without sacrificing large amounts of space around your home. This corner tank provides plenty of space and comfort for your fish, but can also be easily placed in the corner of a room. It’s a 2 and a half gallon tank, which would be suitable for several small to medium sized fish. But it’s not just space that this tank provides, as there is also a selection of energy efficient LED lights that light up the tank and make it look pretty spectacular. The tank is perfect for beginners who want an ‘All-in-1’ package too, as it comes complete with filters and other accessories to ensure the safety and health of the fish. The Amazon reviews mention that is the perfect size for a bedroom or small room, and the filters are quiet enough to not disturb you whilst you sleep.

We’re huge fans of the design, and think that the hexagon shape is perfect for fish who like a bit of privacy. What many people don’t talk about is how important corners are for fish – they love hiding in them! If you fill this tank with decorations and plants, then they’ll be able to hide in any corner they want.

This 50 gallon pentagon shaped fish tank is perfect for slotting comfortably in any corner of your home. The unique pentagon shape of this tank means that you can view your fish from a variety of different angles, and it can easily fit into a variety of spaces in your home.

It also makes any plants or decorations that you add to the tank look even more attractive as the light catches certain colors perfectly through acrylic.

If you’re still unsure whether or not a corner fish tank would be a good idea for your fish, then don’t worry. We understand that it can be tricky to buy fish tanks without seeing them first-hand. Fortunately, we are going to list some of the advantages and disadvantages of these items, so you can make a fully informed decision!
As I’ve outlined above, corner tanks are perfect for fish keepers who are struggling to find adequate space for their fish in their home. Whether it’s because you live in a small house, or because you already have a fully stocked home, these tanks can fit in the corner of any room, making them ideal for pet owners who are looking to save on space. Another great thing about these tanks is that they are fully functional and safe for fish. All that separates them from standard tanks is that they have corners, which make them suitable for tight spaces. Provided that you don’t put large fish in here, they will be happy!
One of the major disadvantages of these corner tanks is that they are limited to smaller fish. I would never recommend that you let larger fish inhabit these tanks, as they simply wouldn’t have sufficient room to live comfortably. And really, that is the only disadvantage!
So hopefully by now you’re able to make a completely informed decision about how suitable a corner fish tank would be for your fishy friend! If you need any further advice about these tanks, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today!
