Cleveland, Ohio? I'm originally from Lorain but I'm a transplant here in Clearwater Florida. Nice to see a fellow Ohioan. Keep up the good work.
Is your tank going to sit behind the wall or flush? I see your stand extends past your opening and I'm assuming that's just workspace?
Your storage tank looks too big to service in that space. I would suggest adding a couple of big bulkhead fittings to the side of the tank for access before you seal it up.
ill have to check that out!!I was just watching a video from Mr saltwater tank of his visit to Julian sprung's home. Julian placed his tank on a piece of acrylic. Probably around 1"thick. It gives a really cool lighting effect under the tank. Yours would look cool because of the two separate rooms. I was thinking, you could even mount some color changing leds under the glass for added effect
This looks like it is going to be very nice build, it is a lot of work, but it will all be worth it! A bit concerned that your critter storage didn't include a skimmer so pets died needlessly, but I am sure you did what you could.
What kind of lighting do you have planned? Man you are going to like having the sump not under the stand, you can get to it so much easier!
