    My tank is made from 12 thk glass and the back panel from "smoked glass" so i don't need to paint the back.
    sizes are 1500 * 450 * 800

    no, a mate in PTa made it for me, he makes tanks for a living.
    he's the same guy that will be dedoing the sump to include a DSB. and currently he is making another sump for me that will include a Algae scrubber.
    when i get it i will take pic's for you to see. Aswell as my stand i over-designed it you can drop a house on it .

    Crazy how people dont come to the party. Its such a relaxing hobby! And i havent seen my partner get so involved in something like this before. Strange how most of the time brings couples closer.

    Sorry to hear thou!
