Thanks for getting pictures on, it's something I try to do as much as possible as it makes the forum more interesting.
I hope to see pictures later too.
I will try to keep up to date photos as things progress. The tank is nowhere near finished yet, more decor and plants to go in over the next weeks or even months, work and money permitting. As long as the Clowns keep still for a few seconds I will get some photos of them done.

That is a fantastic tank, really impressive on the video
Daft question, but is it a bubble curtain you are using at the back ?
Not a daft question at all. Yes it is an air curtain. In order to get the right amount of air pressure, I don't mess with the smaller pumps I use a Belkin Aqua Koi Air 50. Big enough to drive 12 large air stones at a depth of 3m.
