Nice build, I like the sides being blocked off, and all my tanks(less 52g) are painted black backgrounds, the fish and plants POP against the black. With the sides being wood that tank would be neater.


Fantastic build.

Hey, thanks w/devil unsure what to do with the background just at the moment, thought about the Black idea but not sure how it would look. Could try a piece of Black card just to make my mind up i suppose ?

here this is how it will look minus my black water.




the bare shot shows it best I think. No plate is under the sandbed.

(don't worry its been rescaped and have some plastics in there to use for cover its no longer bare)

It's beautiful! GREAT job! Maybe you should go into business! I love tanks that are built into something.

The movie wasn't found. Great build I really like the idea of using the flooring.
