I grew up loving animals. We got our first tank in 1981-82 ish. I remember as a teen my dad's friend had one built into a wall in his house. I knew that one day I wanted that. When I bought my house in Dacula a main reason I loved it was because I saw the a perfect wall to build in an aquarium that could be viewed from all main living rooms. It was amazing - then I sold the house.
Now I live in a condo and so I am limited on how fancy of a tank I can have. However, I have enjoyed building it and look forward to enjoying it for years to come.
