Where did you find the 1 inch Oak. I live in Florida, and the only places I have close by are lowes and Home depot. the Only thing I have found so far is 3/4 oak plywood.

The more pics the better, I might end up copying your design

3/4 would be fine that's what marineland and other companies use. I got mine from a lumber yard by my house in Pennsylvania. Your 1" boards are 3/4" when plained anyway.

What do you guys think. I have 2 gold stripe maroon clowns now in my current tank that I will be tearing down when my 60 is ready. Should I put them in my 60 or put them in a bedroom tank and get black ice clowns for the new 60?

Hmm how large is the tank in the bedroom? Those clowns get a tad bit larger than most.
