    You should start by cleaning the glass and sharing some pics!

    If you’re going to be accessing the tank from the front then whichever will be easier to clean off.

    Yeah I haven’t had a chance I’ve been busy I’m lucky it’s coraline and not algae

    Do you have a certain theme in mind for the appearance of your basement? Any other finish materials that you have already selected for other areas that you want to match or contrast?

    I personally love the look of stacked stone but that's just me

    I think a combination of stacked stone and barn wood or rusting tin roofing and barn wood could be awesome. Something like the attached image for the tin. Clear coat it to preserve the rustic look.

    I personally like the look of contrasting materials vs a solid wall of stacked stone.

    Ya I think a mix of the 2 would look awesome. Maybe the bottom in stone and the tank framed in barnwood.

    Wonder if I could make my light shroud out of that corrugated metal. Looks awesome! Like a floating canopy, but out of the metal.
