Tanks are a pain once you get over 24" IMOP. I currently have a 30" tall tank and have worked on 36"-48" and the main issues that I run across are larger eurobracing on big tanks that seriously shorten your reach, being able to scrape coralline algae that grows on the lower parts of the sides, placing corals and aquascaping. There is no easy way to really do the last one even with tongs. I would recommend building so sort of system that allows you to easily climb on top of the tank so you can work from above instead of from the sides. This will allow you to have full use of your arms and let you access all areas of the tank efficiently.
