    Very nice, how ever I would have though a bit more width would be better - nice design though.

    3ft wide is fine but a bit wider would mean you could easily go for a scuba dive!
    I would also be more concerned about gas exchange, Looking forward to seeing the skimmer for this!
    This kind of height is also a challenge in terms of fish selection, tang shoals tend to use a small vertical range ( as witnessed by their easy capture with nets - they don't swim over or under the vertical trapping net).

    It's a nice idea but as it says in the report Henry may not be that interested in the contents of the tanks.

    Does anybody know the answer as to where the fish think they are? If I am a yellow tang living on level 3 do I know I am only in 10 feet of water or do I think I am in 20 - 30 feet of water?

    Just what I was thinking earlier. With such a small surface area, surely he'll be very very limited for stocking numbers!
