Some Disadvantages 

  •  There are some disadvantages to have a wall mounted  aquarium versus a regular fish tank. One such disadvantage is that if you purchase a fairly small wall mounted tank, your fish may not get the oxygen they need due to the reduced surface area limiting the amount of air flow through the tank..
  • Oxygen is only added to the tank by gaseous exchange, the smaller the surface area the less gaseous exchange takes place.
  • Wall mounted aquariums may also require more tank maintenance than a regular tank.

Selection of fish 

 Your selection of fish may be limited depending on the size. Some of them do not have the thickness to accommodate large species of fish, so take that into account when making your decision. Many wall mounted aquariums are about the same thickness as a plasma television, but can be built to your specifications. You just need to be aware of the space limitations when choosing your tank, and if you prefer to have larger fish, select a wall mounted aquarium that will allow sufficient space to accommodate their needs.

The golden rule is that the width of the tank should not be less than the length of the adult size of the fish. A 3 inch fish should not be housed in a wall mounted aquarium that is 2 inches wide; the fish will not be able to turn around.
