Thanks for the kind comments. Here is how a did my lighting in Nylon CF, the newer version has a place for cooling fans. The supports are K type copper treated with Birchwood Casey Brass Black. It looks really cool and its a cheap fix. I also built the tank. I added adjustable stops to the front support, the rear ones are fixed. I can upload that one too. The problem is some Black Boxes are 155mm to the center of the supports and some are 145mm.

Some of you guys have created some amazing things. It took me hours to make a holder for my Tune pump connectors and it is still not exactly how I wanted it. I tried to put Tunze in raised text on the top front, but could not get it to work for anything.

Keep at it! 3D design/modeling doesnt come overnight. It still takes me sometime to make things.

Question, for the modeling/text are you using tinkercad, fusion 360, or a different software? Maybe we can lend a hand to help out, and get it exactly how you want it! Feel free to DM me.

Just keep working at it, I have filled a recycle bin of scrap! It looks strong and functional, I like it.

Here are some cooling fans I also printed. Really tough CF15 Carbon Fiber. They came in handy during the hot water. There are three different bases, one for Eurobraced tanks, One for standard tanks with an Acme screw tensioner and a clamp style with a spring loaded tensioner. They can be adapted to any kind of tank or sump. Also see the improved Mason Ring cutaway. VERY Strong!

Created a little holder for under my tank. Have it on command strips attached to the door. Holds my turkey, glass scraper, net, 5ml Syringe, and some measuring spoons. Bottom of the stand was getting cluttered so decided to make some. Can share the file if anyone is interested.

Very cool @fowler279 ! I would definitely love a copy of the file. I could probably use it as is for my own tank, I keep the same tools handy.
