Sorry I couldn't accommodate your cool filter @jbb_00! I'm glad that you're going to set it up nonetheless! I always love following along with your tank builds, your customizations are always top notch.

I had a pretty good idea that it was going to be a no go from the start. LOL 

 

I enjoy build / design process way more than the long term upkeep thats for sure. Sometimes I think I tend to take things a little overboard in my builds. :blush:

So did I. And I have to conclude that he’s going with “Petco Shopping Cart” theme. But now I have doubts as I haven’t seen any wheels in his drawing. 

 

I have tried your approach (a little smaller in scale) in case this tank goes into my bedroom. Well, it’s no go so back to the drawing board.
