Well several years ago I added to my list of aquariums. I have a 150 gallon in-wall and decided to add a 265 gallon in-wall. The sump is a 125 gallon tank under my stairs and the main display tank is viewable from both my basement/bar area as well as the steps walking down to the basement.

Nice cool bar and bath I bet gin and tonics and taking the browns to the superbowl(taking a #2)have never been better with those badboy. I am envious I've been looking for what the guys on here call a monster tank(anything larger than 160g) but can get my mits on anything bigger than poorly made 106 g new for 1700 or used locally for 1200(which is a rip)my next question is were they prefabbed or did you DIY?I also like how you ran edging and have a overhead on the one in the bathroom

I pickup the 265 barely used for $500. Also came with a few other goodies.

  • Yes. I would try it. Seems like a good method for nutrient control.
