Here's my 90, the finish looks better without the flash lighting.

The CO2 tank/power strips are within the cabinet to the left of the aquarium. The aquarium itself extends all the way to the right, but there is a sheet of 1/4" thick acrylic making a bulkhead just to the right of the view opening, creating an in-tank sump accessible from the top of the right hand cabinet. The front top panel hinges up to get to the tank/lights.

The aquarium is sitting on top of a wooden frame that has adjustable feet to get it level. So the enclosure really just surrounds the aquarium without touching it. Four lag bolts takes it all apart.

I recently added a small aluminum 'radiator' inside the cabinet at the left, with an exhaust fan out the top. It can pull the water temperature down a few degrees overnight and works well to prevent high temps.
