I decided to start a thread for my mantis tank build. Starting with a 40g aqueon. Built the stand frame and painted the back and one side black.

Will be skinning and painting the stand this weekend.

(Sorry about the pics, think I got it figured out now. Won't let me delete the attached ones.)

Thanks! The other attachment is a double too. I wasn't sure the best way to post them.

Thank you! Rock still hasn't shipped yet. Need to make the cave and put down some starboard in the bottom. Rockwork then water.

Looking awesome! What size Tidal filter are you using?

CR
That's the 110... Biggest one. It'll give 10x turnover and a huge basket to add filter media, carbon, whatever.
