    500/g going In-Wall

    So one of the fish room walls (the larger wall) is facing our dinning room - so guess what tank is going to be in-wall before the tank matures- I need to slide the tank about 4 ft. and make a 8 ft long cut in the wall. One dilemma, wall is load bearing. House is one story so it's not a tough modification I prefer someone else to do it.

    If you guys know any reliable source/contractor please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Ya you can always reinforce the wall with steal beams if you think the support will be compromised. years ago an old G.F. wanted me to put my aquarium into a wall and was going to cut wooden beams and replace with steal ones. But I decided not to even though it would look awesome. My place is humid as it is and thought I would have an outbreak of mold behind there and would also make the home stinky. Good luck with your venture

    ^^^its not that difficult I just don't have the time-house is one story so much more easier. If I can built the monster stand for this tank I can easily put up a couple of 2x12 -no need for metal beam. 500/g going In-Wall

    Buy yourself a crib - don't waste money in rentals. Does not have to be a mansion...owning is always better especially for a reef junkie.
