Tips for DIY "Built in fish tanks".

Does a wall aquarium have to be in a wall?

IMG_3647No, any tank that is built-in is a wall aquarium.  I just finished my 250 gallon built-in tank.  This tank is 2’ deep so instead of dry walling it in, it makes more sense to have cabinets below and above for the filter, storage and ease of maintenance.  A second wall was opened for viewing from another room.  This adds a focal point to that room and visitors that see this end first are blown away by the depth of the tank.  This was a 8′ closest but makes a much better super tank!
