oops...

looks like it posted the pictures in the opposite order that I attached them in...

first picture is with frame
second is just the tank

remember that the frame and tank don't even touch. it's more of a partial enclosure. will probably have a waterfall on at least one edge. just need to figure out how to light it...

thanks for any ideas...

SHAME, SHAME! I can tell you that I have never done that, and furthermore, yak yak yak....

Oh wait I am posting this from work. LOL

Some underwater pool type lights would be very cool in that thing, IMO.

Sounds like a good idea. I'll definitely research it to see how they would work...

Looks like the acrylic is going to be pretty expensive.

BUT...

I saw in an earlier post where somebody mentioned something called sani-tred or something like that. It looks like some sort of goop that you put in a container that when it cures becomes kinda like a water proof liner.

I remember checking out the site and they took a wicker basket and put a coat of the stuff on the inside. Then they filled it with water. If I remember right, it was aquarium safe...

This has me thinking about the fact that plywood is a lot cheaper than acrylic. I'm thinking about doing the base, sides and back in plywood coated with this stuff. That would leave the front to be done in acrylic.

Does anybody have any experience with either sani-tred or plywood/acrylic aquariums?
