Stand is almost finished. A friend made it for me. Just gotta put on the plywood top and maybe bottom and we’re good to go.

Wish my friends would/could make me nice things like that, ha. Do you plan on skinning staining or painting it?

I’m thinking I will probably paint it and put a curtain across the front. Maybe skin it one day.

Stand is here. Tank is on and sump is underneath.

 

Now I just have to install some baffles, hang the lights, and plumb it all together!

We have a hole. Eshopps template was too small for the hole saw they prvoided for some reason so it didn’t get drilled in the right spot. A bit of modding. Aka breaking off some trim and we’re all good.

Yay! omgomgomg

 

Why the new light fixture? Wasn't the one you were going use halides already?

 

And you're going to have a 75g sump for a 50g tank, did I get that right?

Haha yes you got all of it correct. The sump will be a split of frags and display fuge. The Giesseman fixture is much newer and nicer. Its also silver so matches the industrial stand.

Time to think about stocking plans. I really really want to take advantage of the top down view.

 

I know 100% i want some clams and some RFA’s. Im thinking maybe a large population of gobies. 

 

Was going to put my antenatta in there but i think having a lot of different shrimp and inverts in this tank will be awesome.

Sicce Syncra 3.0 and Tunze 6040 for flow. May add another small powerhead for flow but we’ll see how this works out

Update time!

 

baffles have been installed. Leak test passed. 

 

Just have to plumb this bad boy together, hang the lights on display and sump.

 

If all goes well I will be plumbing it by next weekend.
