Wow, you'll need a wetsuit to reach the back corners. Hope you have a good set of lungs

LOL....To make matters worse or better I'm not sure which yet. The overall height of the tank stand and canopy will be 80". The top of the tank will be at 68" high. So you think it will be tough reaching the back corner? HA it will be tough reaching the anywhere in side this monster. I have a ladder and as long as my waist is at the top of the tank I can reach any point inside.

I'm getting ready to drill the 3 holes for a closed loop. I'm waiting on the rock to get here so I can get it rinsed off and ready for tomorrow. I'm making more SW as well. By the time I'm ready to fill the new tank I should have about 200g of new SW mixed and ready to go.

I'm off to drill some glass.....

If I end up in the tank head first I will probably have little bubbles with #@#@ coming out of them. LOL

Outta curiosity, why the 48 skyscraper and not a more lateral? Better for the fish, no?

dont wanna hijack the thread but for me... i only have a 4ft wall to work with and thats the biggest tank that is 4 ft long that i could find... i dont care about the height myself... worth the extra work to have a 150 gallons imo

Well, I would rather have a 6'+ tank but this one was FREE so I'm not going to complain. The stand I have was built for a 110 (4'tank) and I always over build things so it will handle this tank. My canopy I built to fit a larger tank so it will work on this as well. The stand is 52LX25WX38H the canopy is 52x25X12. Things tend to work out rather funny sometimes.

I had to take a break drilling. I have all three holes started and one is almost finished. I have to get this done before I leave for work in 2 hours.....
