Maximum tank depth?

Hey guys.

I am currently shopping for a new tank. My betta is currently in a 4 gallon Biorb. I've been looking at Reef-One's 9 gallon Biube. It's 18 inches tall. I figure that after adding substrate and leaving a few inches of air on the top, it'll be about 15 inches deep or so. Could this be too deep? I'd assume betta fish are more accustomed to shallow waters.

Thanks

It's not a problem, I have a 29 gallon and they have no trouble swimming that high :) Plus he'll LOVE the room!

Don't worry your fish will be fine. Just don't make it TOO deep.
