 Hi,
 I  am  planning  to  DI  myself  a  wall  hanging  aquarium.  Can  anybody  help  me  with  construction  ideas?  What  I  exactly  need  is  the  design  of  the  frame,  in  which  the  glass  is  fixed.  I  have  seen  these  kind  of  aquariums  in  many  websites  and  shops.  But  the  problem  is  that  nobody  is  willing  to  show  me  the  rear  view.  How  is  the  tank  fixed  on  the  wall,  just  like  a   wall  clock  or  a  painting?  
 And  one  more  thing,  I  am  not  going  to  put  any  fish  in  this  aquarium.  Just  an  aquascape.     I  dont  think  these  tanks  are  suitable  for  fish

 One  idea  would  be  to  have  a  Slab  protruding  out  from  the  wall  with  more  of  the  slab  inside  the  wall.
 Below  is  one  such  schematic,  the  left  side  is  where  the  tank  would  be  visible.  That  way  space  does  not  become  a  constraint.

 The  portion  protruding  outside  can  be  surrounded  by  a  "wooden  frame"  to  help  lend  the  feel  and  hide  the  insides

 you  can  use  iron  angles  to  hold  the  tank  on  all  edges  and  then  can  hang  the  frame  however  you  want,  that  way  no  forces  are  acting  on  the  tank  due  to  hanging  the  tank,  as  all  forces  will  be  on  the  angles  
 
 some  thing  like  building  a  cage  and  then  building  the  tank  inside  the  cage,  as  they  do  for  large  tanks,  to  provide  support  to  the  tank.
 
 once  you  build  it  show  it  off  so  that,  some  of  us  who  haven't  seen  something  like  this  Smile
