well done so far sir!
I agree bones needs to pull that new one apart and give us more pictures of the assembly so we can pretend to have half the carpentry skills he does :D or maybe at least some schematics we could work off.

BTW it looks great, how much did it cost you to make?

Thanks for the compliments.I don't ever draw up any plans.I just have an idea of what I want it to look like and go from there.I built the stand for my dad with wood I had left over from other projects so it didn't cost much,just had to buy a couple of trim pieces.I'm also going to do a canopy for the 50g,just haven't got around to it yet.

Your's truly,

I can't wait to see. I am wishing I could get another tank to set up now that I have more of an idea of what I like and dislike. I wouldn't make so many mistakes next time around. Do you know what fish and plants you are adding?

I was thinking either a SE Asian theme or Rainbows.I love the Boesemann Rainbows.As far as plants I'll get a couple of swords,vallisneria,annubias,crypts,java moss,water sprite,and I haven't decided on stem plants yet.

Very cool! I just can't wait to see it. I am always excited to see what other people do with their tanks. Everyone seems to be so talented with Aqua scape, not to mention the cabinet build. WOW!!!
