I'm planning on starting a small breeding colony of Sepia bandensis. I've begun cycling a 50 gallon Low Boy with a 20 gallon sump that I plan to load with macroalgae (another hobby of mine). However one of the care articles I read mentioned that bandensis prefer deep water tanks and seem more comfortable with more water overhead. Has anyone had experience with this? Would a shallow lagoon style Low Boy be suitable?

welcome to TONMO, @K1ngW0rm! Hopefully someone with experience or knowledge here will provide some guidance. What are the tank parameters of a Low Boy?

A "Low Boy" is a breeder-style tank originally built by Zoo-Med originally meant for coral frags. They are L48"xW24"xH10"
