Gotta ask where did you get the glass panels and did you have them pre-cut or did you cut them yourself. only 60 bucks isn't bad at all. Much cheaper than acrylic.

This is the first time seeing this thread and I have to say while I admire your determination and effort put forth building this tank, it scares the hell out of me. 2 seams in the middle of the tank and 4 seams on the bottom and tempered glass on all pieces. Aren't you afraid that one of those rocks will get knocked over from a digging cichlid and bump your tempered glass and shatter into a million little pieces and dump your tank water and all its contents on the floor? Regardless of my fears for you having to clean up 100 gallons of water and millions of pieces of glass your tank does look nice so I hope you the best.

All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death life is only a dream which is an imagination of ourselves. Bill Hicks

Hahah, thanks, yeah lately that how it sounds like.
When I wanted to catch my 2d pregnant cichlid in the tank, I put the net inside and say c'mon get inside, took less than a minute and out of my 100 fish she was in the net
