Looking good Richard. I love the set up for veiwing. A couple of bar stools, some beers to set up in front of the tank, and a great veiw of the aquarium. Very nice.

Curious....did you take over someone’s kitchen? It appears that you built the tank into the bar area???

I suppose would make for a nice frag room. :)

Love the details with the decorative panels/moldings.

yes the tank is in a nook in the kitech area that we really didn't use for anything..all access is through the back where you enter through a door.

You got that right. I've had mine for about 4 1/2 months now and I'm pretty sure it's my slowest grower.
