ALSO What I haven't shown above is (On either end of the tank, there will be a HINGED Hidden/Invisible Wall Piece, so I can clean around each corner with a Glass Cleaning Magnet)
** MY BIGGEST PAIN in last setup was cleaning CORNERS *** So will eliminate that issue this time.

I think this will be unique and look great.

Any thoughts? Something Wrong.
I did this when I put my 40 breeder in a wall. The stand was built into the wall and I had the drywall come flush up to the top of the tank trim. This was the best picture I can find.

Thanks Matt.
I'm really proud of the result.

Trust me my office won't be that tidy for long once I bring back my work table and all my hobby junk.

However I have a GREAT CONCERN with the 65 Gallon Fish/Rock Holding Tank/Sump setup.

I gave away all my good corals for hold at a friends place.
I kept one Plating Monti in my Frag tank under the T5's.
It was doing ok (even Growing White Tips) considering I didn't do anything. Not even dosing.

Few days ago I move it from Frag Tank to 65 which I have kept ALK/CALC stable, but no water changes.
Within a few days it went terrible so I move it back to Frag tank.

Sure I didn't do water changes for 2+ Months. Haven't done an N&P test either. (Time to do that NOW).

Maybe it's neglect, or maybe that 65Gal/Sump still has the Curse.

I'm leaning on really restarting the New Tank with all new Water and Just add the rocks and Fish back in (Dipping all rocks with Bayer)

We'll see when the time comes.

David, Very Nice Design with a Equipment room behind. How does it look finished?
What's that foil looking Wall covering. Some kind of Moisture, Vapour Barrier.
Have you run into any (wish I did things differently after running setup for a while) since I still have chance to change things on the Inside.
