It does look great! But how do you get the fish out if you want to catch them?

Very creative and looks good too! :D

Looking around I found a stand not quite what I was looking for but more then capable of doing the needed job and very sturdy. So home came the stand and it was put together in came the tank and misc filter parts required from the garage and here is what we have now.

Slightly different angle.

The whole corner shot showing 3 tanks and equip drawers.

Oppostite corner as a bonus shot showing 3 tanks there.

The entertainment unit completes the rest rest of the wall between the two corners shown. The unit is not exactly small (8 feet long and taller then me) but I still need a bigger house!!!

Note I will be changing the hood and light eventually too as it work but just isn't what I want.

very cool looking.

is the back side left open, so you can see if eggs are there, or if a fish has died, or if fecal waste is being built up inside the caves?
