We needed a good visual to start getting used to what the new tank will look like. I built a mock up of plywood and acrylic so we can start getting used to the new monster in our living room.
The area where the old tank came out is providing a challenge. I have a few spare floor tiles, but not enough to repair the area. Thinking ahead to a day when there would not be a tank here, it will just have to be replaced with another divider wall. The stand will have leveling feet, so the differences will be easy to deal with.
