I built this a few years ago.When my fish died,i had to get rid of the tank before my kids asked for another.(I was the only one to clean out the tank)

Anyway,i was working on a desert truck,and the inspiration hit..Since this build,i have picked up 3 more tanks at garagesales for cheap..They make for a great dust free and lighted display for your work.PLENTY of room for imagination.
