    That is a gret tank. You have great thought into it. Do you think youll be building anything grander. Lots of aquarist build up till they reach 100 gal mark or better.

    You should buy one of those spotlight for ponds as a light inside the tank.

    Under the tank is cool, but the white lamp in the tank in my opinion would really complete the whole lighthouse theme.
