Okay thanks that would be much easier and makes sense.
Spent most of the day shopping today and checking prices for this build and have found some really nice things for it and have decided to do the whole cabinet in a brown and black stone chip with stainless steel fittings.I am going to work in some down lighting if I can using the external filter as a show piece instead of hiding it as it will make life easy to maintain it.
Well next week is going to feel like Christmas I just paid for the
external filter it is 350gph with a built in 9watt UV
lamp and all the trimmings with great reviews here in the UK
Fluval 200 watt digital heater
and still shopping.
