That's an AMAZING build- thanks so much for sharing it!
It's unfinished on the back side. I'm not sure if I'm going to close it in or not. I like the ambient light that spills into the office at night, but I might still finish around it. I'm just glad I'm finally finished the 'bedroom' side.

BiscuitSlayer- Thanks. I built the trim that way so that it sits tight against the glass. Lighting is 8x40watt T12's, and 3x25watt cf spirals. No CO2, & so far no ferts.
Thanks for all your comments. Now I've got to finish painting the rest of the room ('70's wood panelling) crown molding & baseboard, & do something about the old 86g in the background.
