Can't see the pics, Jimmy. You have to be logged in to see them.

I remember the pictures when you were in the process of setting it up though; it was a very nice project! Cool

Great set up, Jimmy!

I for one am glad you shared it because I'm new to this forum.

I only wish I had a room like that to set one up too!

Thanks for sharing!

How hard would this project be for someone with limited carpentry skills be to do?
Looks great I bet pictures don't even capture it as good as it looks in person.

As long as you can use a tape, and saw , and level, it would be easy.
Proper planning is the key.
measure twice, cut once.

ok i have to tell the truth about this tank jims wife did all the work and jim took all the credit, this tank is a lot smaller then the 210 but i think it looks better the fish in the 210 are much sweeter then the ones in this tank but the tank just looks too cool the way jim put it together.
