Nice work btw my beast is 46 inches tall so I cannot cover it with anything Ill just place behind the tank that will be perfect....I like the thinking! No need to fear an ugly beast. Just hide it!
Any reason the beast could not live under a simple plywood arch with a sheet thrown over to look like a table for plants, pictures, or whatever? Maybe you've got a beer can collection to show off? Who knows what you might like to drag out if you had a place to put it.
Works for me---
My wife said no way to a drain and faucet in the dining room but was fine with a plant stand!
Thanks buddy..I read your other tank build thread. Nice to see you go all out with the CO2 equipment, contro soil, etc. What did this cost? Like 20k? Hope you have the time to keep up with such hi tech (hi speed) tanks. You've got pretty decent hardware in place it seems, if you can drive it well you should have one great planted tank! All the best.
