Al;l fantastic questions and points! This is why I want you guys to look at this and give me feedback.Think about how often you go from that counter or door to the other counter(?) and that bookshelf. Make sure it's not going to be annoying if you have a process that involves doing this 2-3 times in a short period and you constantly have to walk around the tank. But alternatively, you could just set up another counter
If you have to bring something large in diagonally through the door (obviously a couch... for fishes)... that could be complicated. Or if you can get it in the door but have to bring it around to the other side of the tank, could you maneuver it around the stand?
This is all I have to offer! It sure will make for an awesome entrance for you or whomever is walking into that room.
Oh yeah definitely a good idea if you can wait. (I'm not 100% sure that we can wait for you to set up your tank tho ; I mean we will suffer through it with you in solidarity.)Maybe I should simply tell the guys top wait and let the stand sit there for a week or so and see if it will be a pain in any way.
