In-wall 210 gallon, above grade subfloor - anyone done it?

Lol you'll catch on to the jargon in no time. Heck there are a couple of people in the club that look at corals and call them "Pretty rocks" and they have nice looking tanks.

David you are assuming that he's running a controller, I'm that he's not. $400- $1000 is a tough pill to swallow, when you're still looking at $1500- $4000 just to get into the hobby. I think the way you discribed is the best one if you have a controller, but is almost unworkable without one.

But I have to give bigspood a lot of credit, doing all this research and doesn't even own a 5g nano. Think of all the people that might still be in this hobby if they did just half of what this man has done sofar. It gives me chills when i think of the people I've seen walk out of a pet shop with a 10g tank, HOB filter, and a Hippo Tang.


But... I was told those tangs will clean the algae off my pretty rocks in my 10 gallon! So i bought 2!

Well Mega you have enough algae in your tank to keep them both alive for years. Lol

Not sure if u r still planning this out spoon but the easiest way to determine load bearing walls is to look at ur roof.  Which way do the rafters run. From ur pictures if the wall u want to put the tank in runs perpendicular to the rafters then usually not load bearing. If the wall runs adjacent to the rafters thwn 9 out 10 it is load bearing. But still i would have a engineer verify if it is or isnt
