    So this is my next project piano tank. first it needs sanding down then all inner workings striped out adding a solid base for the tank to stand on. tank will be opti white 1500 x 300 x 400 custom made to fit in to the space above the keys.

    Great to see something original, ... brings music to my ears :)

    Would be nice if the lid could open to show the keyboard without obstructing the view of the tank..will leave that challenge up to you.

    some ideas

    this lid intrigues me, presumably the candle holders attach in the inside once open..?

    I see there is even space for a sump below, well certainly a canister and CO2 bottle.. looking forward to see what you come up with..

    Hells bells.. the internet can really steal your thunder. Great ideas there. I reckon the wood fish will work much better though.
