I recently found this website and was hoping someone on here might see this and be able to help me out. I have recently decided I want a salt water tank as a center piece in my living room. I am aware of the difficult maintenance and setup. Not to worry, I may be just starting out, but I'll have enough research to hopefully pull it off. Tips of course are very welcome. The only current issue I have is figuring out filtration, as this aquarium needs to be visible on all sides and any pumps, tubing, pipes etc. must be hidden. A friend of mine told me I should find a way to get any and all tubes going through the bottom of said aquarium. However finding information on how I could possibly do this has been proven difficult. A stand will be underneath the aquarium, which will provide a space to hide any filter systems. I just don't know how. If anyone has attempted such a crazy thing or can link me to a video or blog that might aid me, that would be very great. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
