Keep it up man.
My friend had a 265 and it was an awesome view.
With this being in wall, it'll be perfect.
Keep up the good work.

Sorry for your struggles. Your build looks like it's coming along nicely though!

Yeah its rough some of my super super nice chalices didnt make it but I just cant wait to get this monster setup. Im hopefully getting the drywall done this week. I think we are going to tear out all the HORRIBLE wood paneling in the basement and just knock out all the drywall at one time.

Once thats done I can start working on the frame and hopefully get the tank in im thinking maybe sometime next week as long as nothing insane happens.
