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
