The skimmer and filter are kinda a place holder until I can get the sump up and running (I have everything but the MAME Overflow).  The skimmer is on the low end and the ATO in the tank makes it hard to dial in the skimmer as it goes from dry to wet and back again in-between it filling (using a HydroFill ATO).  Once I get the overflow up and running it will a steady water level so I hope that it works a bit better.

Not sure if I am going to get another one so I have a pair or double up on the cheaper power heads (I like how it looks when they are angled towards the surface) and figure out a way to use the mp10 to make things more chaotic.

I am making a sump using a AquaMaxx Rectangular 4.6 Gallon.  It's going to pretty tight down there (I built the stand to be only slightly larger then the tank)... In hindsight I would have liked to have it a bit wider so I could have used a 10 Gallon

I way over engineered my tank stand, but it's perfectly level and attached to the wall with two 80lbs anchors.

I'll get a picture of it when it is a bit happier (I took it just after the lights turned on).  I bought it with one head maybe 10 years ago.  It's huge now.

Are you serious that is amazing.  You bought that as a frag. And ten years later it looks like that.  Wow it looks like a tree I love it. How often do you feed yours. I feed every two days.

A better view of the Duncan.  No direct feeding, it catches what it will when the fish are fed.

I really like your aquarium and DIY stand.  Do you mind sharing the dimensions of the wood you cut and used to build?  Did you use non treated 2x4’s?
