I have a cubby in my house that currently has shelves in it that I have been thinking about having a custom tank built for. It will be a FOWLR
The good thing about this location is that there is a 18" wide x 24" deep x 96" tall closet to the right that I can put all of the pumps, filters, and other equipment in. Also, behind the tank is a bathroom and I plan on hooking into the drain for the tub with a valve that will be used to do water changes.
My concerns are that the planned dimensions of the tank are 47" wide x 24 1/4" deep x 78 1/2" tall (with the back 4 1/4" being used for an over flow, making the tank just over 387 gallons) and the tank would be next to my pellet stove (about 18" away and the stove has a large airspace around it).
So, my questions are, do you think that the tank will be too deep to light properly? Do you think a chiller will work well enough to offset the heat from the pellet stove? What other problems do you forsee with the tank?
