Evening all

 

Here,s my Tank build, It all started in october 2009. I wanted a sumped tank and the weir on the back of tank. I knew the sump had to be as big as poss, and maintaining the sump would definately be an issue.

I decided to fit draw runners to the bottom of the cabinet.

I got the oak free from a mate :D here,s a couple of pic,s of the cabinet.

Well next was a wet test on the draw runners

41 litres in the sump and the draw works great, the runners are good for 45kg,s
