Very nice tanks Lisa!!!! The stands and tank trim are very tasteful, and look like they may be custom. (???) Great setup. Beautiful fish as well.

thanks FanmanKC! yes they are custom made, each tank stand on 3 colums of concrete blocks (12 in total & very cheap), then my husband designed & made the wood effect surround & matching hoods. as all the tanks are in the same room ,they all blend well together being the same wood effect ,which is limed oak! so much cheaper than buying ready made

thankyou for the kind words

they were so easy to make, just cut to size & then we used silicone to stick them on(thats for the hood). & on the base ,just screwed through to the blocks & stuck a strip of matching edging strip over the screw holes, which makes it look like separate cupboard doors .

Nicely done Lisa!! I love the two tanks at a right angle to one another. That looks great! Your burundi look amazing too. I love the strong contrast in their stripes. Thanks for posting.

Everyone's tanks are so distinctive. This is great fun. I hope to see more posts.

Lisa that is a great idea for two front tanks. That looks awesome. I wish there were some way I could do that with my tanks.

Espo, the 4 bars are 2 intakes and 2 outputs for my 2 tidepools under my tank. I bought it as a Marineland supersystem. It is powered by a little giant pump. It changes the water about 9.5 times an hour.
