    ok the display is 1m*1m*600 deep
    stand 1m*1m*1m
    sump 900*450*350

    the problem with the stand is that it is too big to enter the doorway so it has been cut in half and will be bolted together...
    should be receieving the tank and stand tomorrow morning,i completed the sump yesterday,needs to get a nice wash up.

    Nice. Can't wait. A cube is one of my options, so please do me a favour. Please take a pic of it next to something of familiar size. I want to get a mental picture of it's size. Will appreciate it.

    And hurry up already!

    Mekaeel - how you going to "cut up" the stand and not loose strength to hold 1000 litres (+-) of water?

    Why did you opt for a cube instead of a normal tank? Any particular reason?

    You don't have to have water in order to take a picture of a tank.. As top poster you should know better M, take pics.. start the thread, in that order dude !.. I'll get you at IMACSA !!

    Good luck with the tank, it sounds fantastic.
