Not for a quite a while. It will take a bit more planning. I tore down an old tank and rebuilt it for this 80. The 100 (more likely 120) will be totally custom with starphire glass cut, chamfered and drilled to order. It won't be cheap even though I will put it together, so I want to be sure on the design. I am still considering thigs like the sump/filter and overflow locations and final dimensions. Right now the plan is for a 50"x24"x24", drilled on the end with a slate lined bottom and the sump in the stand but, like I said, I still have a few things I haven't decided on. If I go rimless, for example, the length and height would loose two inches each... I dunno...

Ver. 2.0 bare bottom same tank another approach (defunct)

Ver. 3.0 Pool filter sand same tank now

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
