  • Marko says:

    Why is it whenever he says he has a “gift” it ends up costing us a lot of money?

  • Jeanette says:

    Ooooooo! I can’t wait to see it. Tank envy!

  • Grant Troutman says:

    I was just thinking… aren’t we about do for a video update of your 90? New live stock, equipment, etc.?

  • Mark H. says:

    Why make the tank smaller, make the room bigger……. 🙂

  • John H. says:

    Two comments:
    If the tank fits between the walls, IT’S NOT TOO BIG! Taller was good. Narrower was not! :<(

    What a tease!

  • Matt says:

    I disagree… a tank can take over a room… its should be part of it… this isn’t the sea life centre… its our homes… 🙂

    Can’t wait… thanks for the sneaky preview Mark… 😉

  • Jen Hibbits says:

    Congrats Mark. I’m sure it will be spectacular.

  • john says:

  • Robert Thom says:

    +1 @ Grant Troutman

  • The Berrier's Reef says:

    Great idea Grant Troutman! I was thinking the same thing!

  • Veeral Shah says:


  • Lucas says:

    The suspense is killing me!

    When is the next time the No-Nonsense guide is available?

  • Brian Davis says:

    What the heck! Where was I when this rolled out! Lol, must’ve been working a stretch. I missed this release when you rolled it out, haha, way to sneak it by me.

    Hey, +1 on that false wall; this is a brilliant idea, great recommendation! The false wall will add a pleasant dimensional affect (I agree) in that room and compliment that fantastic tank, nice! Looking forward to seeing the build Mark! See ya!

  • I know where you were Brian…but I can’t say it in public…

    I am almost done constructing something very similar to this design but using a 125 gallon. Since the false cabinet above that tank goes to the ceiling. I am now having concerns about moisture build up. The cabinet was made of wood and as a safety measure I painted everything inside the cabinet with an oil based paint. I have also added two 3inch fans on each side of the cabinet to either push/pull air into the enclosed area. Do you think this setup will adequately prevent moisture issues???? Open to suggestions…

  • jawolff…the fans will help pull air out of the area around the tank, then depending on how big the room is where the tank sits, you might have a moisture build up in the room.

  • Bill says:

    I’d like to start a beginner salt water tank with a 55 gallon that I cleaned and refurbished. I have a Fluval 305 canister filter but no room for a sump or protein skimmer. If I want to do a fish only with coral decorations, no live rock or live sand, will this setup suffice?

  • lewis vogels says:

    why make it smaller?

  • Chris says:

    so Mark what happened to this build? When are we going to get an up date on this tank?
