 Nice  wood  finish  to  the  tank.
 
 I  liked  the  idea  of  having  the  door  on  the  sides  of  the  stand  too.  Would  be  easy  for  you  during  the  maintenance  of  the  sump.

 been  to  a  few  glass  shops.  apparently  cutting  the  glass  of  the  tank  wont  b  possible
 
 maybe  ill  just  put  a  new  small  planted  tank  beside  the  sump  in  the  future  with  shrimps  etc.
   
 is  it  possible  to  connect  it  to  the  sump  by  a  pump  ?  continuous  circulation

 i  am  looking  for  low  maintenance  and  low  tech.  no  CO2.  no  ferts
 planning  to  have  anubias  and  java  moss  and  maybe  some  java  fern..  all  attached  to  driftwood.
 
 will  any  plants  take  root  and  grow  in  fine  sand  at  3.5'  depth.  low  light  plants.  will  cryptocorne  survive

 If  you  don't  intend  to  disturb  the  sand  very  often,  then  Cryptocoryne,  Vallisneria  and  amazon  will  work  (have  seen  a  few  tanks).  But  don't  expect  them  to  grow  to  their  full  potential.

 Thats  huge.
 The  display  looks  very  nice.
 
   But  why  all  the  bottled  water?
 Plants  will  do  well  with  hard  water.
 
 Regards,
 Venkat
