So I now have it almost finished. I need one more cable to get the sub hooked up but that should be here today. UPS has not showed up yet.

Curious, maybe you posted it. What is in the middle of your AL IIIs since your stack is in the corner? A tv?

Nice!

Do the fish dance for you? :D

How do they respond when you are cranking it up? Isn't water a conduit for transferring sound? I wouldn't think its hurting them but was just curious if they acted any different with high volumes.

I've been wanting to get an aquarium for quite some time. Need to find a place to put it.

I have never seen them react when I crank it up. They get more scared when I walk by. Well except when I have the fish food in my hand. Then they come to the top.

I have 4 kissing gourami's in there right now. I had a few more fish but I have had the tank up for 3 years now and have not replaced any that have died yet.

Look at the fish tank, there are NO fish in there! They were fine until he added the 300 X 2's, They all died from cracking it up to loud! I think I do see them floating on the top?

I was more concerned about that tank shattering at high db's and flooding out the audio rack :-" ...

What kind of rack is that?

Fishies and audio are safe. It is a very good tank. I don't remember the glass thickness but it is a top of the line tank. Though after the new year I am thinking I am going to move it to another room. I am going to make an aquarium room. I have that 120 gallon, 150 gallon and a few others that I am going to be setting up. Aquariums have been my hobbie since I was very young.

The rack is a Studiotech. It is not the best but not a cheep one either. One thing I like about it I was able to add a shelf to it. It is modular.
