    I see they use glass or acrylic floors, the 65000 Ltr tank that I work with has acrylic tops with the tank underneath the dining room table but it doesnt work because there is always condensation on the underside of the floor so you can see much only some movement from the bigger fish.

    Trev

    have they tried putting more airflow across the surface of that one Trev? might help to limit the condensation?

    sounds like something to see ;)
