In the pic you posted with your first critter in the tank I just noticed that the trim is broken/missing in a section. You may want to check into fixing that....The trim on that kind of tank helps keep them square....

What would be he best way to repair this? Wood trim all the way around ?? or is there somewhere I can order a new trim for the whole top of tank??

I just read your entire thread about your 150-120 mishaps....REALLY SORRY to hear all that. So Glad to see you bounced back!!

I don't know the answer to that. I would contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say. I would not fill the tank with water until you get a good answer from someone that knows what they are talking about. Just my thoughts.

Looks great. Have a question though, why the 3 holes in the top and not just a solid panel for the tank to rest on? Will it be drilled through the bottom? Structurally not difference, just curious. Bout the only thing I did different was I extended the side panels and the trim beyond the structure 4 inches so I could rest the cabinet up against the wall and have 4 inches of room for piping to go vertical. ran it right up to the top and it attaches to the canopy. Makes it look 'built in' kinda, in a way, if ya look at it at juuuuuuust the right angle kinda thing.. ya know
