Very well placed and thought out. I love the school of fish on the wall above the tank.

Great choice on the stand color. That definitely works better than the grey.
Have you started any dry runs at possible stone scapes?

Is this one using the high clarity glass?

Looks real good? Was the stand built by just a local cabinet guy?

Thanks. I started flattening the bottoms of the lava. I thought it would be a lot easier but this rock is pretty dense in some places. I'm using a diamond blade. What I have done so far looks great. It is 'high clarity" glass.

No it was built by a wood carving artist.

That's one of the reasons I asked about the glass. Being that they sell very few 180P tanks, it stands to reason they might have older inventory on hand.

Moving them suck, your life involved never having any stairs, staying in the same house till you die etc.

What lighting did you decide upon?

I keep a set of 4 suction disc, the high grade ones just in case.
