    @Sunny , you mentioned 2-part, do you use a commercial product or a DIY version? I was reading a thread on DIY versions so this popped into my head

    Nah, it is steel.

    3o inches. It is standing up on the 6 feet side. So imagine if you pushed it from right to left and it fell. That is how it should be.

    Get me some ideas on that. I have nothing decided on it. FYI - The fish room is painted dark blue. So something that stands out. I was thinking going all white wood, but wife hated the idea - LOL.

    White would have probably been really nice but tough to keep clean. How about a medium gray? Something along these colors
