Yes it can and would look nice. However, I recommend at least a 55 gallon tank for saltwater. The fish are much more sensitive to changes in water quality so a bigger tank allows for more volume to absorb any problems.

The color refers to the background. This is an acrylic aquarium with no glass. The back piece of the aquarium is actually a colored piece of acrylic if you get blue or black. Clear will be just like the rest and then you can add your own background if you choose. I have the blue and it looks great! The hood will always be black.

This tank is NOT GLASS. It's one piece ACRYLLIC construction. I have the 46 gallon clear bow front and the entire tank is crystal clear so assume the colored acryllic tanks are the colors stated. There is NO removable top/hood. It has pre cut holes for air line tubing (2), heater, filter and light. Heat from the light eventually melts/warps the top of the tank making the light fixture sit crooked.

Cleaning the inside of this tank will have to be done with a combination of magnetic scraper and hand held scraper. The opening at the top is a bit restrictive so thought should be given to the kind of aqua-scaping you will use. Live rock, etc. might be best placed in the middle of the tank to give you room to maneuver around the sides.

I just created a post that describes the openings in the top of the tank with approximate opening sizes (based solely on my recollection not from actual measurements).

Yes, you could easily use a canister filter with this tank as there are inlet and outlet openings in the top. Hope this helps.

You don't want to do this. There is plenty of room to add even medium large decor (just play with angle and turning the decor to get it in and out to clean as needed). Also of plenty cut-out room for heater, air lines, power filter or tubing for canister filter. It is tall sitting on a matching stand, I have to use a small step stool sometimes (I'm 5'6"), to replace artificial plants after cleaning them of algae. The acrylic is thick and SeaClear thought of everything in their design. The original cut-out for the lighting fixture and splash guard is a perfect fit you don't want to mess with. The aquarium is one solid piece well fused together at what almost appears like no seams. I use the splash guard, but with a Marineland LED light fixture. Very happy with this tank after one and half years of use; I even bought the same thing in the 46g bowfront 5 months ago (consolidating smaller tanks) for another room in the house - essentially same set-up with larger openings.

The Sea Clear 36 Gallon Bowfront Aquarium is 30” Long and comes with a 24” Fluorescent Hood with one light fixture inside. This is enough lighting to meet the needs of most aquarium enthusiast. There is enough room in the hood to add another 24” light fixture. This way you can add two different Fluorescent light bulbs. Adding LED lighting is not necessary, but can add beauty to your aquarium. There are several manufacturers and sizes available. You will need the LED lighting to be 24” or more and 30” or less to fit the 36 Gallon Bowfront Aquarium. You should visit your local store for more information. LED comes with its own Hood and Lighting. You may have enough room to keep both lighting systems on top of your aquarium.

Question

Does this tank allow you to place filters on the back?

I was looking into a Bowfront 36 gallon tank. The acrylic looks nice but I noticed that there isn't a lot of room on the top. Can a LED light be placed there instead?

Also, can filters fit on the back of the tank? Ex. Marineland Biofilter?

I was looking into this tank and the Aqeon 36 gallon Bowfront glass tank.

All Sea Clear Aquariums and the Bowfront have a slot on the top/back of the aquarium to place your filter and accessories. Sea Clear Acrylic aquariums are seventeen times stronger than glass, lighter and provide better views of inhabitants than traditional glass aquariums. They are safer around children and pets. All Sea Clear Combo’s come with a light hood with a Fluoresent fixture inside of the hood. You do not need to use the hood and fixture that comes with the Sea Clear aquarium combo. LED lighting is a popular addition to your aquarium. They have many advantages over other types of lighting for aquariums. They save on energy cost, provide amazing color, longer lamp life and are a good alternative to other types of aquarium lighting. You can retrofit the Sea Clear light hood with LED lighting, or purchase the LED lighting with its own hood. Ask your pet professional about the different LED set ups they sell.
