A good friend of mine "rescued" a very thick old hardback book about 
aquarium fish after it had been so abused her father was going to throw it
out.  I apologize that I neither recall the author or the title right now, but 
this book had a photograph of a large purpose built setup in this style, 
and recommended it as a way to be able to see plants in your tank if you had 
herbivorous fish.  IT also had a design with a back section of the tank 
sealed off behind a wall of glass, with plants behind it, and fish in the front 
     And the Petsmart nearest me has a smallish(around 30 gallons?) setup 
kit designed like this.
