Its dirty right now Sad

The empty spot you see on the side will be covered with the same type of wood as the front. He made it so you just screw on these big plates as a skin. Makes for really easy maitenance! Smile

also, you can slide a 75g tank in from the side. No more hassle with sliding something in through the front! Very Happy

The stand is a little too solid in my opinion. Something like 15 "2 by 4's" used. Could quite litterly park a car on this.

It's BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the color/finish of the wood! Simply gorgeous! Love that the canopy has fans installed, and that you can slide the sump in from the side. It's going to look AWESOME! mr. green

Transferring stuff will be bad and I would more than appreciate your help Smile
I'll pay in frags or pizza of course(:

Moving it will be the biggest problem. It took 4 of us to move it onto the truck and 3 of us straining ourself for a week to get it to the back porch. Def. need at least 4 people when I move it inside. There is a good side though! We have double sliding glass doors on the back porch so it will a breeze to walk in! Smile

Well, I got a sump! Very Happy

was going to post a pic but I realized how boring it looked.. its just a 75g tank with extra thick glass.

It feels so coo buying a tank thats 50% of the main tanks water volume to use as a sump bouncy
A lil over half of it will be a refugium! It will be three times the size of my current refuge! Smile


I will not be doing leds anymore btw. I'm looking for 250w halides..

Anyone know how to plumb a tank? I know the schematics but what hight do I cut the drain at? how wide? etc?

Awesome! That's gonna be a huge refugium!

No leds. Why?

Hmm, plumbing a tank...I don't know what to tell you. My plumbing was very straightforward. Maybe check out Melev's Reef; I think I found some stuff there in the past...

My plumbing consists of a canister, an in line, an out line and a pump. Otherwise known as a rena xp2. So I will not be of any help lol

@nick: You're lucky. I despise your simpleness right now.

@Samantha: Yes, he is but he's the reason this forum is awesome! wasn't really expecting a lot of help in this area anyway (:

The leds are only half working at this point. I've got one fixture that works completely (160w) but the other doesn't work at all (wiring issues) and only one driver works -_____-
