I hear you, loud and clear but the Table is a lot sturdier than it appears !
We, all six Kids were all reared from, and played on that Table, it is solid Pine with legs like Tree Trunks and Braces so it isn't going anywhere, it has always been the Test area for new Tanks and projects.
The Tank cost 129 Euro, so around 160 Dollars US.
An alternative was to get the Tank made from normal Glass and only have the Optiwhite on the Face but it just looked better to go all the way.
I plan a simple set up with Sandstone from a local Reservoir that due to, believe it or not, drought in lovely rainy Ireland, which had caused it to become visible and available courtesy of a Friend in the Parks and wildlife dept. Stock will be 20 Galaxy Danios F1 and 20 Emerald Danios wild caught. I will also have, to fill the upper levels, Rasbora Kubotai x 12.
