a little different when the box has to hold 5 or 6 hundred pounds.. is that a 55? good looking stand.

It’s actually a 75. Behind the right door is the filter and all the regular fish stuff. The center and the left side is our “liquor cabinet”. We refer to the fish tank as the TV (we have not turned on a TV set in almost two years).

Very nice setup. I think I would have to reinforce the floor or put such a setup in the basement! I have had tanks ( in fact, I use to own two pet shops and did my own importing when no one else was doing it) for some 30 years. I go through “phases”. The last couple of years has been live bearers, something I had never done, thinking it was beneath me—only beginners did that. Boy, what stupidity. I used to have a 55 full of Chiclids, my favorite being Jewels.

Have your say...
