    lovely looking stand, hecticly strong:)

    i was going to suggest lightly more width to that tank if you could, but it sounds like the die is cast already, still going to be a lovely sized tank.

    nice equipment list too, what lights and internal flow are you planning?

    Great position for the tank.
    Watching this build with anticipation.

    (you are going to wish you had gone wider though - as I do now!:p)

    Should look great once setup and filled with livestock. I also would've gone wider, better for aquascaping, and there's plenty of space, you could've sold the couch....or nail the door shut :whistling:

    at this stage my wife is happy with the new tank, so i will rather not sell the couch, the wife must be kept happy all the time..... other wise when you want to buy new equipment she does not approve.....:)

    Just do what some of us did, buy the new skimmer, then do the changeover when she's not at home... and don't forget to hide the slip :p
