I did not build this one, I got a deal I couldn't refuse. I've built many over the years and I too like the look of Oak. The frame work is out of 2x4's and 4x4's. It's six feet wide and seven feet tall. All equipment is in the bottom section.

Egg crate has an air flow advantage. Plexiglass, light diffusing material, plastic wire mesh, there are many things that will work. With small fish ALL holes, even thin tiny ones , must be covered.

I think Gary's comment may have been a tongue in cheek commentary on some people preferring quick to humane. Dropping a live fish in a food blender is pretty inhumane.
