Do you have any pics of your 125 gallon in the wall?Squidhead said::frown:I miss my basement. The great thing about "through-the -walls" in the basement is you can spread the equiptment out so it's easy to reach. Well, if the other side of the wall is the unfinished side of the basement. I did a 125G that way. All that was in the tank was 2 pumps that were totally hidden by rockwork.
Shanezam, What is the tank made of ? Do you think it's safe to have it overhanging like that? Don't get me wrong, it looks great that way, but is it at risk for leaks or worse?
Jason, google "Frameless Fish Tank" it is similar to that...jason081180 said:looks like a custom made tank? i would love to do one that is custom made and bigger. i have two 75gal tanks and would love like a 300gal.

Well I do and I don't. When my old desk top was showing signs of wanting to take a dump I started backing up all my digital pics. I should have them burned on a DVD, but the last time I went to find them I couldn't. Fortunately, when I was looking, I found pics of the kids when they where babies that I thought where gone forever. I only found some pictures in the same file that they where in. I may have removed them to a different file and renamed them, I really don't remember. I hope I can find them. I took pics of the front and all the equiptment. I actually made a few DIY's on it's construction in the wall, under the sand jets, and the sump filter. I know I have them because I have found them before, I only hope that when I downloaded them, I didn't erase them from the DVD some how. All I can find is some DIY CO2 stuff I built that I was selling, and a 29G planted tank I had in our kitchen when I first started doing planted tanks.shanezam203 said:Do you have any pics of your 125 gallon in the wall?
I have created a plan for a brace-less tank design similar to this thread. Think of it as an in-wall fluval edge with and inch of floating base.
Do you think the tank will be ok?
PLEASE look at the way the panels are attached to each other. I think this assembly method will give the best side support but have read that it may be better to align the side panels so that they sit on top of the base rather than its edge. I prefer the edge aligned look better and thought it would somehow reduce the vertical stress on the base overhang.
- 12mm glass (opti-white low iron Pilkington). Outside dimensions: 110cm x 65cm x 24cm.
- The base of the tank sits inside the outer panes.
- The base of the wall is about 2cm less than the outside tank edge.
- The top lip of the tank is about 5cm to 6cm high and inset to the tank top
- The blocks on either side of the lip will be glued to the top panel of the tank and used to keep the tank stable if someone leans on it by transferring the load weight onto the wall sides its contained within. (The top part of the wall it re-enforced to take such loads although not shown on the animation).
I also prefer not to use thicker glass base but an not opposed to it if is deemed necessary.
Needing some advice from anyone with experience please.
Thanks in advance
