Just read through this entire thread. Very nice build, rbarn. I am impressed. Have you considered installing a vent, to blow the moisture out of that hood? I don't have any experience with tanks that run so warm, or are so large, but I would assume that the inside of that hood is going to be getting mighty humid. I couldn't tell from the picture of the hood being opened, if you have a wood back, or just drywall. If it's drywall, you 'may' have mold issues down the road.

Yes it is getting a vent system to blow air out the top of the bookcase. I will have to custom fabricate something using large desktop computer case fans.


Trying to get moved in and everything else wrapped up around this house guys. Patience. When I get moved in here soon I will be able to work on it at night and it will go much faster. Getting close now. 6 month remodel. Lots of details to finish up.

I know all about remodels man. No worries. I have a 140 year old house that we've been fixing for about 4 years now. Trying to get everything "finished" (LOL!) within the next month. I work harder at home then I do at work. Nonetheless, forget the computer fan fabrication. Get a bathroom vent fan, and a timer. Play around with it for a couple days, and see how often, and for how long, the fan needs to turn on. Simple to purchase, simple to install, and relatively cheap. Computer fans would probably be cheaper, depending on how many you would need to purchase.

Good luck with the remodel. I know how stressful, and tiring it can be. I'd like to see pics of the rest of the place if you don't mind. I think we should have a non-aquarium related DIY section to show off our other projects.

PC fans are MUCH MUCH MUCH quieter. Bathroom fans, not so much. You can get 200mm CPU fans now too and they move a huge amount of air, although 120mm's do too and they're much cheaper.

Exactly. Trying to make this tank whisper quiet. No water gurgling, no fans, no pump hum.

From the looks of it he could put a flat screen on both walls

Is this chap a millionaire or something? Great job on the remodeling! I'll use that place as a blueprint for my house (with permission, of course).

The photos were all photoshopped. Rbarn is a hoax... ... ... Unless he posts an update and proves me wrong.

I'm sure it's close to finished by now, but Mr. Barn probably has a load of southern belle's in the Bentley and is heading out for some fun in the sun, remember he said he lives the life of a single man. So we should see the update around November and I understand because the Harley just had an oil change, battery, and new a map loaded to the ECM so I won't be posting much either until the weather cools.
