    This sounds very exiting. Some pics will help to get us introduced better. Wishing you all the best with the new tank. I find it super exiting to build something new, its like a roller coaster ride. Faster and faster on this process that does not seem to have an end until:1: one day: IT'S THERE AND IT WORKS.

    Nice size tank.
    Almost the same as mine, only difference is that yours is 1m front to back where mine is 750mm. I like the viewing height. But reaching into the tank, I must admit is a problem. And I'm 1.8m tall. To do any rockwork, I have to drain 200L from the display. Then I can do my rock art. I had a frag that fell down behind my LR stack, and I could not get to it. So I was forced (again) to drain 200L, and repack my LR stack.

    Will you have Euro bracing all around. I got no center brace. All euro is double 10mm.
