    Yeah it was just to thick for the cutter I had. Oh well I’m in no hurry I mean my 55 is working just fine. So I’m going to get started on a plywood 100 sump this weekend. 420 delayed a little longer.

    Here’s a picture of the fans I purchased very quit and they have multiple settings. Image1517974516.769853.jpg Image1517974577.429057.jpg
    I’m going to mount the one behind the skimmer blowing in and the other behind the light blowing out.

    I think if I’m going to enclose the stand I’m going to need to do this. I had decided to take my time on this and do it right. So I should just break down and do it.

    Like I was saying just preventative install and new air going into the skimmer constantly. The fans are 4w. But I just wanted to point out my temperature monitor is in the picture and hasn’t changed since Saturday. We live in San Diego so we have to keep our central on always because temperatures fluctuate big time. But you could always try without, then if you decide you need them add them later. Or if you just want to install like I did just to be safe I’ll give you the eBay link for the fans.

    Thanks. Yes they made life so much neater and simple under there. Also very simple with everything marked for the switch panel I love it.
    The kids made the whole project worth it. Now they both want to build the 420gallon. But they both asked if we can build them high bed frames with desktop space under like a bunk bed with no lower bunk. Hmmmm they both have queens this could get interesting.

    I’ll be completely honest my son is the one that gave me the idea for the power stations. I was sitting there debating on how I was going to do the power strips and he says just make some dad I absolutely loved the idea and went for it. He likes to help with everything I do though, he just helped me put upgraded injectors in my f250 he still jumps from air tools haha.

    My son keeps telling me that he’s gonna do all the cleaning in the 420 because he says he’ll fit just fine. I said what about the volitan, puffer, and urchin. He said I have to get him diving gear of course haha. He’s a little riot.

    I was just looking at your build thread. It is cool to see what you have been doing. I want to integrate the plugs and switches into my next stand. I didn't see what was going on that you called "glass cutting fail". Were you just pulling off trim and broke the glass ?
