Default 392 gallon commences

It's past my bedtime so i'll keep this brief:

392 gallons
7L x 3W x 2.5H
Starphire front
external overflows

Here's some construction pics. Please note that i just grouted and the film on the tile hasn't been wiped off just yet so it looks a little dusty.

Nice finishing. All these big tanks are popping up everywhere and they are all so nicely finished. Very nice.

The tile is OUTSTANDING, and I like the way it meets up to the glass. External overflows are so cool, more display room, and the invisible access to the lights from the front is GREAT!
