  One of my business's specialties, is creating space in existing walls to
accommodate aquariums. May I suggest you enclose the back as well-(you can
always apply a background to it). Then from the front, Go 6" above the tank
opening and create another opening the same length as the original tank
opening. This access opening can then be concealed with a framed fish pic,
possibly relevant to the fish in the tank, Hinged on one side, with a
magnetic catch. Make upper opening large enough to service (you can make it
relatively small, if you use a python changer) and to retrieve fish. Create
framing within to cradle lighting.

  Let me know if I can be of further help....
