    Very nice. Wooden stands are very popular on that side of the ocean.

    Yeah I think cost has lot to do with it, plus wood is much easier to work with in my opinion.

    That has to be one of the most brilliant looking builds ive ever seen. sheesh i like the sliding doors with tiles :) but that doesnt quite work if you have no space on the sides of the tank :(
