    Soooooo where are we up to:

    The foam work is pretty much done, it has now been cut into 6 pieces (yep underestimated size lol)

    I have done an initial tank fitting, it will need a few teaks, but it is a lovely VERY tight fit (it wont require silicone, but I will be anyway)

    Once I've done the tweaks i'll take a new pic of it in tank.

    Now, due to the tight fit, I am thinking of rendering it in the tank, yep it will be harder to do, but I'm not worried about a bit of a challenge lol I would have had to render the joins anyway before doing a full sealer coat.

    I have learnt that an electric bread knife is awesome for cutting the spray foam, it doesn't like the Styrofoam too much though lol

    New pic soon as tweaks done and corners refitted

    Looks good. It does take up quite a lot of internal space though, no?

    No more than normal non permanent décor (wood, plants, rocks etc). The corners that come around the sides are hollow behind and water space is behind it for running filters/heaters/powerheads ect.

    Still need to make a few rocks with caves for the front, am looking at adding coral sand as substrate. Fish selection is done and have a supplier of young fish, that I will grow out. Still tank is at least a month from being finished

    Ah ok, what fish are you going with? Tanganyikans or Malawis I'm assuming from the coral sand?
