    Welcome to the community. That is one very impressive tank. What's it stocked with?

    That's one way to maximise the enjoyment of a huge (and pretty good looking!) tank. Interesting. Would love to see more photos from all the different angles.

    Welcome to the AC...
    You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

    Default Ok here are all your pictures (post above has 5 more)

    Ok here is the last pic!!!!

    So now you can see the tank, it's actually 97" long. Made from 1/2" acrylic. I got the guys ar to make this for me, they are local.

    It's a freshwater tank with DIY background made from styrafoam and cement. The front will have cabinets built around soon. Custom maple doors with gray slate stain. My father will build these, he's good with wood.

    I have hot and cold running into the top and hooked to a metal float. I also have water pipe flowing into the tank and running to a drain so with turn of a tap a siphon will start and only drain the tank to halfway mark. Makes water changes super easy. I do 50% a week. When I want to vacumm gravel I put a quick connect hose on then end of my siphon (inside the tank) and start cleaning (every 2 weeks). So far I have steady 15ppm with nitrates.

    Under the tank is a drain and pan that the cannister sits in. I clean filter media in the pan so the cannister never moves.

    You can't see in the pics but I have a lower hospital tank so with the turn of a couple taps water from the big tank into a smaller one. It also has a drain under it and if it overflows it will run into the pan.

    I have taken alot of extra steps to try to prevent any overflow from getting on my hardwood floors. Many times I have walked away and forgot it was filling but the float and drain on hospital tanks worked like a charm.

    Very cool set-up you have there. Of course you realize we are going to want more pictures once the cabinets are done.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
