First post - what to do with an old fish tank

i have an unused fish tank in the garage. i am not interested in keeping fish, but as the tank is built into the wall, i want to use it for something. something low maintenance and easy. something that will also look good, maybe interesting for the kids too.

the tank is 62 x 62 x 28 cm gining about 28 gallons and 105 litres.

some things to take into account:
-both sides of the tank have no natural day light
-the room to the back side of the tank has a strip light which can be left on all the time
-the rom to the front side of the tank has normal house lighting
-both sides of the tank have no central heating, but are never outside temperature
-the tank is an old fish tank and has a small strip light at the top
-the tank is in good condition - no leaks

I am open to suggestions with what to do with the tank. my main concern is the lack of natural light, and at times, lack of any light.

i am open to any suggestion, apart from get rid of the tank!
