In Planning: Coffee Table Aquarium
I have emailed in for some quotes on the materials needed to some plastics companies and going to go do some footwork to search tommorrow in local stores for prices on the cell cast.
And I think some of the shelldwellers and other tangs would be ok with coasters and such being set on the table. The tank itself is going to be 24" tall plus a few inches where the top will be elevated over the water and most of them like to be close to the bottom 6-12" of water. I think it would be kind of neat to fill it with plenty of useable shells for them as well as some larger ocean ones just to add to the decor. I'm thinking of moving my pair of Brevis in the tank, adding a pair or trio of leleupi for color, and maybe another species to add some activity.

Awww, spoiler alert. I still have that episode waiting on my tivo. I love that show. I think I'm in need of that multi-tank, in wall quarantine setup myself.
I like the coffee table idea. I was once looking at a clear table top setup with a n-gauge train layout inside. What type of fish would act most natural to having somebody placing coasters and drinks on their head?

Scott, I could see you right now down in your fishroom watching one of your beasts get a little rough with one of the ladies and you just smack him with a flipper to tell him to behave.....LOL
Here is link to one that explains everything in details, including lighting, filtration etc.
Hey Scott, how about about that car aquarium on "Tanked"
So I say to her……There is plenty of stuff at the house for the baby to eat!!!! I REALLY need this fish……
1. Is there a source for acrylic panels that anyone would recommend? Price ranges vary quite a bit from place to place and wondering if maybe anyone else on here has attempted something similiar and been able to find a good source for quality and low priced acrylic.
2. Any recommendations on a filtration system that can be mostly hidden, My current solution are some of the bigger powerheads with the built in filters that I could mostly hide in the corner and have it hidden by some corner framework that i'll be using to cover up the panel seams.
3. Lighting Solutions. This is where atm I am struggling a little, The easiest would probably be some of the underwater LED setups but the bigger ones can be quite costly and probably going to cost almost as much as the rest of the tank materials are going to cost lol.
I appreciate any input some of you guys might have.
