Default Custom Made 75 Gal tank

Howdy, haven't been here for a while, too many things to deal with lately. We did a tank recently and I figured I'll post a build from beginning to end. It's still very fresh and hasn't grown in yet, but once in a while I will try to post updates and cool shots.

This is a custom tank we ordered from Protean and of course has an a MistKing Ultimate Misting System and our new larger double LED Lights. I'm just posting links as I know people will ask for them.

We had a perfect walk-by corner that this tank would fit into, so we built a simple stand that would house the external Fluval canister filter to keep the pond area clean and water circulating. Across the wall is a laundry room which is all set up and maintains a salt water tank and has equipment to do partial water changes and auto top off for RO, so the misting system taps into that RO reservoir in the laundry room, away from the view of course. We don't want to see any of that, just a clean tank.

Here are some progress pics:

Very cool! Is there any kind of fans in there for air movement? Can you even put fans in an enclosed tank with a mist system spraying water all over?

As always Marty you have a work of art. What kind of glue did you use to attach the egg crate to the glass? Becky Jo

Marty - Wow....that is one great looking bioscape. And thanks for taking the time to stop and photo each step of the process. This really inspires me to "think bigger" - now my 'little' 35 gallon tank seems so dinky!
When you have the time, please give a description of the materials and equipment you used.
I really appreciate your effort - keep the great photos coming!
