    You need to define the tank as a surface bounded tank. This allows you to design a completely arbitrary shape using NURBS surfaces in Maxsurf, set the surface type to Internal Structure using the Surface Properties dialog, and then select that surface in the Hydromax Compartment definition. It allows you to make the tank any shape you like, spheriacl, cylindrical, trapezoidal etc. etc.
