So far, so good. What dimensions does the tank have?
Also, what are you going to line the inside with? Paint, glass, etc?

Looks like it'll be a nice tank!
However I have a few questions:

How are you going to bond the wood to the glass afterwards?
Is the tank going have glass on the 3 remaining sides?

One more thing, I noticed the hammer on the floor and wondered if you're using nails instead of wood screws....
You're going to need a lot of strength in those joints to hold all that water.

i still have to put the flashing on the back of the tank and screw them in.... then after that im going to make a frame for the top of the glass so it wont bow out.... |

im going to get a fyber glass apoxy to cover the varnished wood, i'd feel safer.

No disrespect but it scares the hell out of me to think of that much water in a screwed, glued wood box.
