I will be monitoring temperatures and put up blinds if it becomes a problem.

At first I didn't think about the sun. It seems like a neat idea to be able to see this monster tank from outside the house in that big window. Hopefully you won't have to close it too often. Does this window get hit a lot with sunlight? Good progress though.

Not lots of direct light so that won't be a problem... more in the winter because the sun is lower in the sky in the winter.

some more pictures of my stand in the stage where I am ready to build my tank on it... The tape measure is the height of my tank.

My daughter really likes to help... but most of all she wants to be in the pictures.

That's an awesome little alcove for your tank. Did you always have a tank in mind for there?

I think your lights for your refug, is a little overkill. a couple of 6500k T-5's would be all you would really need, It also looks like you will be fairly close to the ceiling and with the 400w MH that close to the water you would need a chiller.

When I bought the house I wasn't thinking of a tank there, but once I had the idea it was only a matter of time
