So I have been watching Tanked, the show that comes on Animal Planet, and they have really inspired me to make my own aquarium. So as you may have guessed by the title, I want to build my self a drop-off aquarium. There are many pictures online of these amazing tanks, and with the help of my friends off line, and on line (you guys), I really think this will work. It going to be max 4 foot long. i was thinking of 4' long, 2' wide, 1' tall on the shallow, and 2' tall on the drop area. The drop area would start at the 2' mark. So its about a 90 gallon.
This tank will probably start building in a couple months, you see, I just finished my first semester exams and I'm going to get a job now to pay for all this. Just to much excitement to keep it in, had to share.
I also want it to be viewable from both sides of the aquarium.
Some pics of the idea :
Looks soooo sick
My dad and I have kept many fresh water fish in the past, but this will be my second salt water aquarium. It is going to be made of acrylic and I will post some pics of plans as I make them. :P It is going to be a 90 gallon and I'm hoping for it to be able to be seen from both sides of the aquarium where the shallow wall section is where the overflow will be.
Problem #1. How would I get proper flow on an aquarium of this shape?
Problem #2. Do I need to have a filter intake at the bottom of the drop to keep that clean?
Problem #3. I'll come :P
To much excitement as you may
Thanks in advance,
