Mumma's TV tank build

I know some of you have been waiting patiently for me to start my TV tank build. Well, here it is!

I'm expecting it to be a slow build so updates won't be too often.....

Picked the TV up today. It's heaps better than I expected! Hoping to gut it next weekend.

I've taken some measurements of my 17g and it looks like it will fit nicely except the waterline will most likely be below the top of the screen, which I'm trying to avoid.

I don't know how much space you will have in the bottom of the tv below the screen, but maybe you could put some wood or something in it to raise the tank up a little?

The screen of the TV is 38cm. The glass in the tank not including trim is 36cm and the total height of the tank is 41cm. So the trim and the waterline are probably going to be visible unfortunately.

Not a bow front . Gotta work with what we got. It's a 65 litre aquaone tank. So it coverts to 17g.
