Just an idea though. Since you originally were going to put the tank against a wall (if I remember correctly?), couldn't you move your poles to the outside corners of the tank so you would have optimal viewing both from the front and back. Angling the poles in at a 45 deg. angle.
BTW I see where the best seat in the house is already positioned.

That way there would be no apparatus behind the tank visible. The problem would be to have the arm strong enough not to deflect with the fixture weight, nor the stress from raising and lowering it. I have been designing it in my mind for some time now. (I'm not there yet!)
