Pretty nice looking. Better make sure you install a small ventilation system, otherwise the tanks in there are going to make that cabinet a pile of mush in no time. Eager to see what you do with it

More picture to come when the tanks clear up more.

I have cut the back of the cabinet and install four computer fans that blow back to front i have also cut the doors so there is about 1/8 inch gap all the way around..

Let me know what you guys think.:icon_mrgr

This looks cool! If you had the doors sized so that the top of the door hid the top frame of the aquarium, it would look like the water was being held in by the door glass. Don't open the door, or the water will fall out, lol! I think I have an idea for my next project!

It looks very good, it's too bad the glass doors have the frosted edge, really it's ok everywhere except up thr center.
I know what you mean but Monday I have new glass doors coming that I will paint black on the sides, bottom, and top of tank.

That seriously sucks on the doors
Yea it does but I'm in no hurry to get them right now money is tight and i would rather get some crs in the tanks first so they can start breeding. For now i just leave the doors off which looks a lot better in its self.

I still like the "cupboard full of water'' illusion

I still like the "cupboard full of water'' illusion
That's going to be the illusion that I'm shooting for. This weekend I'm going to working on it more. I'm having a little algae problem right now and I think its because i have high light they are t5ho dual over 20 gallon high. Thinking of mounting them to the shelf and running with no reflector to see if that is going to help and i also turned up my co2 to 3 bps form 2 bps so i will see what happens.

Thanks for all comments guys hope they keep coming I know i can use all the comments and help I can get.
