100 Gallon Road to Nowhere

This is my first big, "high tech" tank. The stand and canopy were DIY and purchased with a 100 gallon acrylic. That tank was badly scratched and has been tucked away to be used as a breeder or grow-out tank or something someday. A new 100 gallon glass tank was purchased for this project instead. The tank lives in my breakfast room and will hopefully make a nice showpiece.
