Time to share a build, it is nearly complete now but I will add the build pics as I have time. The back story: I always have to have an aquarium in my office, I used to have this 10 gallon at work.

Then with Covid I combined all my little tanks into a used 180 while I worked on a new at home office. Here is the 180 - it’s in rough shape and crazy disorganized!!! The silicone is showing signs of wear, aquascape isn’t the best, and there are tons of scratches in the glass.

The lighting is a couple of black boxes (hence the uneven lighting). Blue tang I got from someone else has some scars that appear to be from a previous bout of HLL.

The goal: Refinish my basement and put a new 90 gallon LPS/softie/anemone tank in the wall where my office will b. The setup needs to be very simple as I will travel a fair bit so I don’t want to have to worry about lps. More pics to come!

Thanks! I have always been impressed with in wall stuff and really wanted to try doing one, but the tearing out of an existing wall in a house scared me off.

Since I am building walls into the basement it seems a little easier to just build it in. The wall I am putting it into is only about 6.5’ wide, so I had to downsize to a 4ft tank to make it fit easier. I also have always had used stuff, so excited to get everything new this round
