so no mangroves here ^^

I know you're in a different continent and all, but start with Amazon and e-bay. The sheets were not expensive. Also, consider hanging your side panels using Z-brackets- it's so nice to be able to just pull off the side panel all at once and have full access. Check out the details in my thread.

Your drop off tank will be missed but this new build looks like it's going to be amazing, I'm excited to follow along!

Haha that's no problem, I was kidding anyway
Yes cabinet is 90% finish in my head. Will be similar to the one from the drop off but with some extra ideas

Got it.. well I am ALL FOR using every available inch of space for extra water. It's one of the reasons my wife hates my tanks so much..
Oh well.
By the way, beautiful portraits. I am now one of your legion of followers.

Haha my wife hates me too for the new tank, but I told her it is not that big (actually bigger) as the old tank xD

Followers? What do you mean?

Cheers
