Hey are you gonna put little slide door or some sort in your office side to cover the ugliness of the back and the sump, and everything under the cabinet? OR may be some sort of half size door to at least cover the bottom part, the stand and everything else!! Man that was a VERY nice work, I wish I can find a little closet in my house and tear it down for a setup like that

Well I finally got around to get a new camera. Here is the final product, it took me way to long to finish (6 months), but I told myself before I started that I was going to take my time and do it right. I put my first two fish in two days ago and the 140lbs of LR has been in there for about 8 weeks.

Everything that went into this project was DIY except the tank and the skimmer
