I wanted to get a jewel trigon tank but the fish shop owner told me that this can give the fish extra stress as the curve at the front distorts what they see outside the tank. Is this true PLS help.

Doddie, don't buy Loch Ness Monster fry from that fish store. It ain't true.

I'm not sure what a jewel trigon tank looks like. What size are you looking at? If its for saltwater the best type of tank is a long rectangular tank. They allow for more oxygen exchange and better lighting. Tall deep tanks are harder to keep corals in and have less surface area.
