    " you done good !!!!!!!!!!!!!!" You've got the fireplace, a spot for a big TV, a spectacular aquarium, perfect view to the pond, ....what more can a guy want ? I'm sure there's a location for beverages nearby. You may never need to leave this room.
    Great job !

    Sorry guys, this project has been on hold while I try and finish all the outside landscape projects. I want to have lots of free time to dedicate to it once I put water in it.

    Holy smokes! I am back to collecting plants. No discus this time...just plants. Trying to study up on all the lighting options at this point. Nice work with your tank, it will be rewarding.

    Beautiful job inside and out!
    It's hard to know which view to take...discus, fireplace, TV, Pool or Koi.
    Guess you will need revolving chairs.
    Looking amazing so far. Staying tuned for the final show.

    Nothing new to report guys. It's still empty and dry. Other projects are higher up on the list for now.

    I did just start trying to figure out how to mount the LED lighting system on some kind bracket system that I can easily raise and lower.

    Maybe this spring, getting close now. Water any ways. Be late summer before any fish see the tank at best.

    Starting final install of lighting system. Sorry for the pink pics, using the magenta stunner strips as temporary work lights. I plan on mounting some 12" stunner strips in just straight 12k or 8k white dimmed to 5% for night lights, these will also serve as canopy lights at 100% triggered by a switch that the APEX will see when the door opens

    So impressive. My dream tank! Are you using the Control 4 system, with the Ipad app? Can you give more details on that, please?
