Great huge update for the fish "room" area. I do have to apologize that this will be the last update for a bit as I still need the tank as well as continue to plan the filtration aaaaand do the rest of the basement.
Ran into a little snag with the 55g as a sump. there is only a depth of 11.5" under the tank, and with the 55 is 12 3/4" deep... so no go there. I'm thinking of looking into a 37g which would fit to the left of the off-center center brace. and stick out a bit. not a big deal, just not what I want. so still plenty of time to plan and decide. might have to go with a commercial sump, or maybe order up some acrylic and have a go at making one myself from scratch.
We put the 90g I'm trying to get rid of in place to see how the 125 would fit, since they're the same depth of 18.5" (including trim) and the damn thing fits perfectly on the corner. We're slightly out of square with the wall that has the door, but I'm not concerned since we can fudge a bit with trim to make it look fine.
