Lol yes it's tall but I'm not! However I do have some step ladders to hand.

I wanted to have a low cabinet but I wouldn't be able to fit the skimmer in. Total height from floor to top of the tank will be 5ft. I like a challenge lol.

More pics to follow shortly.

Its mainly about the arm length. I can only mess around with bottom rockscape and pick up fallen frags and whatever else is needed when my water line is dropped (by doing water change). Otherwise, my face would be submerged in the water even if the tank was sitting on the floor.

Can people still grow past the age of 25 lol.

Lol I wish I could grow a bit more in the arms, unfortunately it's just my stomach that is still growing. I should be ok to reach the bottom of the tank while using the mini step ladders lol.

Ok so my cabinet friend has sent me some more pics today. The cabinet is finished he just needs to spray it in lacquer. I'm really pleased with it, what do you guys think?

Also my tank connectors came today along with all the pipe work. I had to laugh tho, the company I brought the pipe work from only sold the pipe in six meter lengths, so when it was delivered they couldn't fit it in the house lol.

Here's the cabinet.
