Start of the journal......
The stand was custom made by a cabinet maker to match the rest of the furniture in the room. As you can be seen, it is next to a bed so silence is key! I was considering going the sump route, but I decided to just go canister as I am new to sumps and wasn't sure just how quiet it would be.
When the tank arrives at the supplier's, I will go get it from him. This is all a patience game. I am doing this tank properly, with all the right equipment. My end goal is to have it as low maintenance as possible (while still being hi-tech) so I can enjoy the artwork inside the glass panels as I feel that is something a lot of us forget about sometimes.
More to come.....
