That looks amazing. Just wondering, but will there be enough room for fish after you put all the rock decor in? :shappy: Are you placing all of it so as to not be able to see straight through or will you be able to wave at people in the other room while you are sitting on the toilet? :hmm3grin2orange:

very cool idea. I like the 'square' shape of the tank. seems to fit nicely in there. I take it that the rock wall is going along the back?

Under water it looks more nice, maybe little bit strong coulors, but i like that.

I kind of like the Cichlids for your tank. I think with all the rock work you are doing, I think those would be the best fish for the tank.

Awesome pictures by the way!

Thinking of maybe using this kind of lightning, will it turn out nice, or what do you guys think?

Interesting thread. Like your house too. The wicker furniture and the painting on the wall. LOL

That blood parrot in that tank has HITH. Don't buy him.

Love what you've done so far and anxious to read more and see more photos.

Great tank idea! Nice details with molding and painting on the rocks. Are you an artist per chance?

amazing project !!! Looks super, If the chamber over the aquarium goes up into the wall you might consider powered ventilation to get the moisture out
