I know it hasn't been all that long yet, but do you have anything you wish you'd built differently? Aside from the difficulty of finding black glass.
For example, I was thinking I'd try putting the valve assemblies on the overflow system underneath, farther down the overflow pipes. They seem like they'd be a bit hard to reach if I ever wanted to, unless I could easily reach over and around to the far side of the tank.
I'd imagine with the way this overflow drain is built, it wouldn't just be silent, it would off-gas very little CO2 compared to a typical overflow which splashes all around inside the drain pipe, mixing with air as it goes.
