    Finally got a fishroom - my 500/g build

    Woooohoooo so excited upgraded to 500/g from the previous 200/g Elos.

    So finally bought a house in pearland since wife works in the medical center now her commute is only 6 miles.


    tank is 96X48X25, 1" thick acrylic, overall the acrylic is in great shape but will definitely give it a great buff as I want my tank shiny, seems are perfect all around the tank. It will be set up as a peninsula and I will cover the far outer overflow with black paint.

    Previously it was a shark tank so the overflow boxes are angled which takes less real estate in the tank.

    The sump is insane...I have never seen a trigger sump this big, 4.5 ft X 3.5 ft x 2 ft

    Here are some random pics of the house and tank:

    By the way the room where the tank is 14 X 14 so more than enough space to see tank from 3 sides and the big plus is closet right by the tank.

    The water change will be very simple-The pool waste water line is right by the window so I will plumb the sump to the waste water line for quick water changes.

    Dang! Must be nice to be rich!

    Can't wait to have a fish room and tile floor instead of carpet.

    Thanks Fish keeper.

    So need some ideas:

    What if I plumb one overflow to a sump in the closet which will hold a skimmer and the far left overflow to the sump below. My main goal is not to build the stand too tall so tank is nice at eye level.

    My concern is the humidity level in the closet even though the closet door is staying open at all times.
