226g Peninsula Tank Upgrade (current tank)

Sept 13, 2012 I've had my 90g tank for just over 3 years. Though I've loved it, and loved having it set up as a peninsula tank between my living room and breakfast nook, there have been some things I haven't liked about it. I custom built the stand for it and always expected to have a matching 2' wide X 7' tall accessory cabinet to go along with the tank to hold all my reefing equipment/tools/controllers/etc. So we left a 2' gap between the tank and the wall.

Where it started

Like many of us I had my first aquarium as a kid.  Fish from Walmart or local fish stores were the norm, but usually fell away due to neglect.  I got back in the hobby around 1998 running an African cichlid tank.  That lasted for about four years, and I miss the days of hitting all the fish stores in Austin to pick up new fish and exotic plecos (one of my favorites).  I was always too nervous about running marine tanks due to the perceived complexity.   That all changed several years later
