Welcome!

Well, there will always be moisture. I guess what you coul do is erect some kind of fixture that will separate the tank form the rest of the closet - Think a half of a box (but something more sturdy, like wood)? Then make it so that its removable so you can work on the tank when you need to.

Post pics.... that might be helpful

WELCOME TO AA!!

Please do not cycle your tank with live animals.

Are you going to do SW or FW?
What size tank?
I don't think moisture or smell will be a problem.

Here is a way to How to easly resize images in Windows XP , it very easy. Here is a way to How do I add photos to the Photo Gallery? .

What, no dart board!!? LOL! Nice looking bar. You will have to reinforce the wall to support the weight. You could even put a picture frame around the hole to make it look like a living picture. Make sure you leave yourself plenty of room to do tank maint.
