any Deep Dimensions in wall builds out there?

So I'm moving into a nice new home.
I believe there is an opportunity for me to do an in wall build. But its not a very long space.

I was wondering if anyone had any nice examples of in wall that are faily deep.
I was thinking either a 93 or 150 gallon cube type tank.

I would assume painted black on three sides, just trying to think of scaping options and seeing what it might look like.

So looking for any good examples of in wall builds, preferably with deeper dimensions.

Thanks

I have no access to the back of the tank so have to have front access above and below.

i dont think i have a long wall to use... like i might only have 3 feet.
ther eis a deep dimensions 150 gallon that is 36x36.... that would be really neat, but not sure how good it would look if you could only see it from home viewing pane.

what do you think?

Maintenance would be insanely difficult on a tank that deep...

Reaching the back bottom corner from just the front of a cube like that is almost impossible. I have a 120 cube. I'm 6'1" and on a ladder I cannot reach the bottom back corner from the front if something falls back there. I have to pull the hood and get it from the side.

My 700g is in wall. It's 42" deep and 42" wide. I have a bar in front of the tank. There is a build thread somewhere on here. I stand on the bar to get into the tank and get in the tank if I have to. Reaching the bottom or back is a pain. My tank is viewable from both sides so it's tough. Good luck on your build!.
