Wow, that's a tight fit. Will you be able to mount the Vortechs on each end?

When I built the walls forgot about the vortechs, Only have 3.5inch on one side and vortechs are 2.5inch. Might put one on the back of tank if I get dead spots

Great to see you started working on the system! I remember last time we spoke you had just gotten the tank! Can't wait to see it progress. Good luck!

Lots of potential!

Have you considered mounting Vortechs(maybe even mp20/mp10) on the back glass? I wish I had 4 MP20's(located on back glass) instead of my 2 MP40's on my 120(48"x24"x24"), or perhaps some combination of the two. Just food for thought.

If your not opposed to it slide the tank over to one side and keep all the vortechs on that side, you should be able to cover it with some trim work/access door.

Just so you have an idea this video is a 1200 gallon using the same idea with 8 vortechs, tanks 10x5x3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh6Cz_H8Uhg

Took the words right out of my mouth. Have you done anything to stop that door knob from being smacked in to your tank?

Other then that! It is a beautiful set up...................................
