A 5 grand angel .. love this thread. If I had your money I'd burn mine .lol.
when you read about people being super handy and doing all these little projects and quick fixes to their tank they don't have a very nice looking tank . However not the case here , smart, handy, innovative and jaw dropping tank . Awesome man

I appreciate the kind words, but I can vouch that I am not loaded. It might be a five grand angel, but that is certainly not what I paid for it (actually drove 8 hours each way to buy it at a heck of a price - that was a LONG day!)

Wow, just read your journey from the start in 2014. You are pretty talented to pit all that together. Where are you located? I'm upgrading t ok a 180 gal & interested in details on your light bracket. Looks like you can move lights to get best coverage then move them out of the way for access to the tank as needed. Thanks

Thanks for the kind words! I’m near Melbourne in Australia :)

Yeah I used aluminium t slot extrusion, makes a strong, light and easily adaptable frame. I’d highly recommend it!

We call them glass cardinals, but I think they are the same?

thanks mate! I started off with an old canon rebel, upgraded to a used Canon 7d and now have a used Canon 5Dmk3. I don't have a huge budget, but upgrade to quality gear when the price is right :)

Most of my shots are taken with the canon 100mm F2.8L macro lens :)
