Before attempting to mount the fish tank, check that the fixing wall is capable of taking the weight of your tank, preparation could save a lot of heartache later.

If you are serious about a fish tank you might want to consider one built into your wall. A built-in aquarium, through the wall with both sides finished is the ultimate fish tank. Since these tanks are thinner than traditional aquariums, a 45 gallon wall tank looks much larger than a regular 45 gallon. For instance, our Jumbo wall aquarium is 5' long, 8" deep and 2' high. When it's in your wall with trim added it has a massive 6' x 3' footprint. That's huge! Your might think that a tank like this costs $10,000 but if you do the work you can have it to one-tenth of that. The bigger the fish tank wall, the better! I better have one of these.

There is nothing more relaxing than simply sitting and looking into a beautiful Aquarium, it has a way of taking you away from where you are to a nice tropical place. These impressive built in wall Aquariums are however not for the beginner who just wants to raise a few gold fish, rather well planned and delicately balanced environments for their inhabitants. Proper acidity levels and careful combining of elements that can co-exist with each other is the first step to getting the technical side right, making it look awesome is the next and equally important step! If you are planning to do a salt water tank it will certainly offer many more exciting fish and visual options. As you can see there is any number of frames you can have included in your design scheme or you can simply go with a clean face for an understated look. Many of these styles were incorporated into the original designs but don’t let that stop you from taking your project to the next level as many of these home owners have done. We hope to inspire your in wall Aquarium plans with these beautiful images and you should look at if you do not see the perfect one here.~ #1 BRAND We are the #1 brand of wall aquariums. Compare our features to the competition and you'll see why no one sells more wall fish tanks. Satisfaction Guaranteed!The general rule for fish in a thinner tank is to make sure the fish will not grow too long. Your fish should have at least a 1” space between them and the walls however 2 ½”+ is recommended. That~ HERE TO STAY We're not going anywhere! Once you purchase from us, we won't disappear like many companies out there. This is why more reputable companies and retailers sell our wall fish tanks instead of from any other seller.~ STRUCTURE All our components are detachable so you should never have to take the wall aquarium off your wall. Some competitors have their lights, filters, heaters built into the aquarium. The problem is if any of these components go out, you have to take all the water out of your fish tank then take the entire aquarium down for repair.Make sure you have a well ventilated 'fish room' behind that wall with about 100cfm in bathroom/power fans per every 150 gallons of water, and have doors above the tank so you can get in the tank from the front.
