    @Yuri the reason i asked is that chrome and salt water do not go down to well. After a very short time the chrome will start to peal and the stand rust. It is better to galvanise then powder coat the stand IMO. One can get some chrome like powder coatings these days.

    Really nice size tank there Yuri, looks like its going to be awesome. Are you going Fish only or is it going to be a reef tank?

    Nemo, I think Yuri's avatar may be his own Gem?
