|Wingsdlc||Pretty tank! I thought about putting a tank in the wall when we built one to make a bedroom out of your dinning room. Decided it wasn't a good idea as we weren't sure if we would be in the house forever or not.|

Finally got around to updating this dusty old thread :p I have to say, this is not my first planted tank by any means. However, it is my first planted tank that's built into the wall. It is extremely difficult to scape a tank without access to the front! especially if you have a "carpet" style scape.
After doing some research, I decided to upgrade this 55g to a 75g. being that the dimensions from left to right are same size, and the filters and lights wouldn't have to change. It made perfect sense!
I managed to salvage one last pic before I tore it down.

This looks like a fun project and I like the look of the tank, I even like the algae on the rocks, it makes it look mature. I do have a couple of suggestion, to help the equipment blend in I would paint the filter intake/outlet black and I would tie that air line to the back of the intake then route it where it's needed, that would make it look a lot cleaner but keep it up the tank is looking great.
One more thing, I use the same drop checker but after you get the CO2 dialed in I'd remove that too, until you get a refill.

Added a few fish. 12 Serpae Tetras and a Chinese Algae Eater. Couldn't find any SAE's local. Shot this quick vid shortly after adding the Serpae's. Slight algae bloom from a bad mix of ferts. . Changed out that horrible C02 diffuser for a Cerges' Reactor. I wish I had started off with that in the first place!! What a difference it made. No more 7UP. I'll be doing some maintenance tomorrow. I'll probably do another vid with it all cleaned up.
55 gallon in-wall planted tank
