    I was thinking and I just do not think 240 gallons will work. I just couldn't get around the 24" width...

    So, I'm building this: 360 DIY tank

    I know that this is about 5X larger than necessary, but it will allow for some excelent aquascaping.

    Any thoughts?

    Is this really a glass tank set inside a plywood box? I see that it has a glass front, but the rest of the tank is also glass, isn't it? (Maybe this was alll explained and I went through the explanations too fast).

    Nope. It's a plywood tank. :D :!: :bugout: :madsci:

    The inside will be coated with epoxy and fiberglass. This is actually a very common style of tank. I can get you links to one tank that a Mod at ReefCentral made that I believe is around 400 gallons and another tank that a member made for sharks that is almost 1300 gallons.
