    So after the long wait, I got my cabinet from Ivan, must say, it was worth the wait Ivan!! Quality is awesome! Thanks for building it for me!

    Then another good news came along! My 60p arrived! So now I got a top quality cabinet and tank, I think I'm going to get a top quality eheim filter! Lights I may just try my hand at some DIY.. We'll see!

    Anyways, enough of the blabbing, here's the pics!

    i must say, my wife was really impressed with the tank quality.. she even asked why we dont change my 4ft to the same brand of tank.. then i told her it would cost something like 15k-20k.. hahaha..

    Hehe... I'm sitting with 7 at the moment and have just started a twin two foot scape... Plus my wife just gave me a dedicated fish room. There's still space for a 120f and a 4 foot. That's all single level, haven't decided to go stacked! Yet!
    Ivan showed me the photo's yesterday morning, the build quality is impeccable, perfectly compliments the ADA quality. Well done Ivan!
    Richard, cant wait to see where your imagination takes you with this one. Have you thought about your lights for this one yet? Think I may have a cool idea for you!

    I was thinking thickish clear acrylic, with the lights inlaid in the centre.. The allumimium can work as "ears" to stop the lights from falling through the acrylic. You could also go for a charcoal acrylic, and cover the back of the light with a panel! It would then still be slim and look good! I can't send a drawing now, but will do this evening! You goint T5 or LED?
