    loyd i think you read his post wrong. he said his tank is 1200x400x600H, so he will have to look for a cabinet of 1200x400x700H.

    On a 600 high cabinet you will have a opening of 436mm and 536 inside the cabinet in hight. So a 2kg CO2 canister wouldn't fit inside the cabinet.

    Surely it's only you that looks in the cabinet unless you are keeping your secrets from us .. :laughing7:

    Just don't go C02 with this tank...there's a challenge !
