Texas Themed Aquarium

Ok, so ya'll may have seen this before. But, its finally finished. Well.....almost, I may add some small rusty stars to the four corners of the stand and maybe some barbed wire around the inside of the frame for the flag.
BTW, I made all this myself ;) It took some time but I finally got it nice and perfect.

Oh yes..... I stocked it with native Texas fishes as well. I have four Rio Grande Perch (aka Texas Cichlids) and a small channel catfish.

WOW! That's awesome. You do really nice work. Do you have a close up of the channel cat? Those guys get HUGE. What are your plans for him once he's reached the tank's limit??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I'll try to get a close up as soon as possible.
When he gets too big I'll either give him to my in laws who should have their outdoor pond by then, or I'll trade him back for a smaller one, or I'll release him since he is a native species. I know a few places I can put him to where he'd be able to live out his entire life.

Or I could just eat him.............LOL...Naw, I couldn't do that to a fish I raised....

It's nice that you have thought out and planned for his eventual humongous size. I'd really like to see a picture. I'm in the process of building a pond and would love to have one but know I can't.
Nice to know you won't be eating him
Looking forward to some close ups of the entire tank.
