It did look a little cramped. I think it would have looked better with no food items. More room for the fish, too.

Maybe, But since this was for a business, and it required a theme oriented Tank the refrig idea was good for that location, would I want it in my house...probably not.
They make all sorts of "natural" looking tanks, (check out their website) but that will only bring in a smaller amount of Viewers and clients. It is probably more of just a Business now then the importance of the aquarist hobby aspect in manner of importance.

Tacky was what the customer wanted it was an Appliance store in Queens...what did you expect?

They I'm sure have a maintenance plan that rotates stock so those plecos will be long gone before it got 2 ft.

For these guys it's a business and don't see them as Pets as say the members of the forum but more as decoration....

Those cichlids had 0 swimming room. All of the space was vertical so they could go anywhere. Especially with those drawers

That headboard last night was awesome! I still can't believe they got the spade tank to be hung on the wall. Even with how they did it (which obviously worked lol) I thought to myself that it'll eventually come off the wall.
