It looks great! Have you cured it and done a water hold test yet?

How was the build compared to purchasing the same/similar type? Where did you source the glass from. I was just looking at this type of build but found the glass too expensive!

Nice work! I'm curious, too, if you've water-tested it yet.

Yes I did water test and added fish to the tank .
The extra clear glass was twice the price of the normal glass. The finishing has come very nice compared to the guming done shopkeepers.
