Very nice job! I couldn't tell by the pictures. Did you put a header in in above the tank at all or just let the cut studs hang?

thanks for the kind comments everyone!

there is no header yet, the studs are just hanging for the moment, I still need to enclose the bottom so that it looks like a cabinet and I will close up the top somehow where the studs are and I want to put a lightbar that will raise/lift up out of the way for cleaning

My thoughts exactly... Without being able to see the rest of the house or that room, did you determine if that is a load-bearing wall? If it is, and you have gone months without a header in there, that is flirting with some serious disaster! I can't even guess what you nailed the picture frame molding to on the front side if you didn't put at least a nailer in there of some kind???

yep, i found out the wall was not load bearing and then I added in 2x4's to nail the moulding to

thanks everyone for the kind comments, its been over a year now and its going great, I still havent "prettied" it up inside the closet but I will by this summer, I'll post more pics then

I have found it is MUCH easier to maintain a larger tank like this, I am even considering going larger, maybe a foot taller in the next couple of years, we'll see
