I like that tank a lot! It's awesome to have such a big tank that will take up very little room!

Can't wait to see it come together, any idea what you're stocking it with yet?

How on earth are you going to reach the bottom of that? :shock:

How deep is it?

Looking good!

I like the "looks of" deep tanks but if you do not have any experience with one - Brace Yourself!!!

My tank is 30" deep and even with my long arms I cannot reach the bottom.

Have you started procuring the longest tongs, python tubes, tweezers, wall scrapers, etc. that you can find!

If not those are my suggestions.

Hi there. Your 'deep' tank is looking really good so far. Can't wait for pics when it is established & stocked. If i can make one suggestion.If i were you, i'd extend the filter pickup so it was closer to the floor of the tank otherwise you will get very little water mocement in the bottom third of the tank.
