Behind the Scenes: 130g Reception Desk Aquarium

This is a 130 gallon custom aquarium that was built into a reception desk in the children’s area of a church. 

The quartz countertop is hinged on the back and props up to reveal the top of the aquarium for maintenance.  It has two Fluval canister filters that are accessed behind the desk in the cabinet.  I provided the aquarium and helped to design the desk with the millwork company.

This aquarium grosses $1,080 per year with an averge of $90 per hour.
