so here is a pic of what i want to build for my tank here.
i have redesigned it and made it differant in so many ways from my original idea so here it is.

please comment if you find anything wrong. i know the drawing is crappy but it looks way better on paper.
the main porpose of the angled front pane is for photography and visual of the corals

I'm pretty sure the top edge of the tank closest to me when looking at ur drawing has some issues? I think it carries to the wrong spot?

what do you mean wes? the only open part of the tank is the very top where the overflow is and up to where the angled part starts. the whole angled pane is enclosed. it will give you better visual without any distortion
