sammy113 Posted July 19, 2007 Author Share Posted July 19, 2007 I got all the materials to build the stand, so hopefully tomorrow i'll start with that. Made some minor changes with the design of the door. I wanted a clean front panel so thats the way i'm going... literally a plain front panel. No doors. The acces will be the whole panel. I found some cool kind of hinges that will hold the panel in place and also got 2 nice looking pullers. Now i'm debating between drilling the tank or not. I consider myself a nice DIYer but this thing scares me a little. It was hard to find this tank in Puerto Rico. There were only 2 in the whole island and when I call the LFS, they told me that they already sold one, so I got the another one. So, the thing is that is hard to find and I really don't want to mess this up. I know there are a "U" tube with nozzle but I don't want that. I prefer the clean look of the bulkheads with the nozzles. I was thinking in other way to use bulkhead+nozzles and tough about a false wall with all this stuff drilled in the acrilic (black or blue) that is easier to me to drill and make a surface simmer and probably a closed loop to add extra flow near the bottom. This will steal about 2" or 3" max of depth but the tank is 18" so is not big a deal. Tell me what you guys think Link to comment
