also.. the open area in between the studs on the right of the picture.. you should ask your buddies if they can leave that part indented.. so you can see that side of the tank if you peek your head in there.   looks like you have the room.. but is that cool?    that would be cool!  you could put a vase or statue or something in there too.. but leave that little slot open just to see that side of tank.

Ha! That's in interesting idea.. these guys might kill me though, the tank was kind of a last-minute addition and added an extra day for them!

Plus, I'm going to frame the tank and it's going to be flush with the wall. I think it being kind of understated will give it a cool look.

I grabbed one of these just right now red rain..... it's awesome and a way great sale on Amazon for it.  I bit!    The effects are too cool.   


Your tank is longer than mine.. you'd want two 24-36 inch ones... but those are on sale for 60 on amazon each... but the 36-48 inch ones are only 2 bucks more than the 24-36!   Crazy!   You know you want to... again.. the lighting effects are cool.   You can set just moon light at night for the effect when people are over, or that storm setting.   ha.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C7OTJ7C/ref=ox_ya_os_product_refresh_C
