30 breeder build

Recently acquired a 30 breeder. I had an old stand laying around so I made some miner mods to the stand to accommodate the new tank(stand was for a 45) drilled it and put in a baffle to make an over flow chamber. I had a sump made from a ten gallon from a previous tank that was sitting unused as well so I plumbed that into the equation for my filtration. This tank sits in an inlay in the wall so I'm building shelves above it the shelf directly above the aquarium houses the aquariums lighting 4 39watt t5's. I'll keep updating as I continue.
I will be staining the wood tonight and I'll update then. Please feel free to comment or if u can see room for improvement let me know! Thanks

I'm thinking apistogramma cacatuoides. And 2 more shelves above the aquarium. I initially built it with a frag tank in mind but I've wanted to keep apistos for a long time and finally have made a nice setup, so apistos is probably what's going in. Thank you very much for the compliment btw!

That looks great so far! It really fits perfectly in that spot. And I really like the idea of adding shelves to make that space more functional.
How did you drill the tempered glass bottom of the tank without cracking it?

Thank you! The bottom of this tank was not tempered, drilling glass is really pretty simple but tempered cannot be drilled.
