Thanks for the comments :) anyone know good source of glass or acrylic? The tank is 1800mm x 400mm x 400mm @ 10mm thick. £180 is steep I think.

It looks great. I am still not sure about a TV about the tank but that is your choice. As for glass I dont know where the best place would be but I do know acrylic is even more expensive.

Looking really nice, you certainly have a talent. One thing I have to mention though, MDF and chipboard are water magnets, I have found that whatever you do will not stop the water penetrating and swelling the panels. I have tried everything over the years, it's okay for a while but eventually breaks through. I hope in your case it doesn't happen.
