So I'm wondering if your seeing any bowing in the body when it has water running in it and when it fills due to the pumps being shut off? Your observation on this is much appreciated and I love your attention to detail as I think this is rare in this hobby.
The thicker the better. IMO.
Mine is 20 mm.
So far I don't see any sign of bow yet.

I've been following this tank since the begining. My question is, when is the big couch being brought in to sit in front of that beast?

The transformation of the room is amazing from where it started...Is this your 2nd resident or is this simply for the tank?

This is not my 2nd resident.
It used to be my garage.

On second thought, the big couch may not fit the room.
I am looking for something sleek and modern.
