    Its all level now, i hope. Also used different wood.

    Iv been at it all day with a level and it looks good.

    I'm surprised they didn't use marine ply for that job. Since its being used in a wet area and all.

    been watching this for a while, awesome concept, awesome work :)

    i laughed out loud re: the powerboard dangling precariously above the large container of water. reminds me of a cartoon i saw once with a cat peering into a fishbowl, captioned "what would you know about stress"...

    Very nice indeed, looks great.

    I love the guys expression in the reflection on the 3rd picture. He must have seen the power board above his tank.

    I like it alot sooo cool :D. Only thing i would do different would be an UPS system incase your power dies. But i don't no much about the fish stuff so maybe they can survive a while without fancy pump and gadgets going.

    Not too huge a deal with fw setups, a battery powered airpump will keep things plodding along just fine.

    Transfered my fish over + my eheim 2028 + about 200ltrs of water over from my old tank.
    Also iv hooked up my UV ster.
    Got some white rock in but most of it is in the back getting bleached bright white, this rock looks awsome under the blue light.

    Still gotta get a cabinet made up on the right side of the rear of the tank, thats where my chiller will sit.
