After about 8 years it's time get back at it. I'm so amazed how much the hobby has grown. I purchased a 48x28x16 lagoon tank and started my dream tank build.

Early January the build officially started. I built a 1 1/2 box tune frame. With 2020 t-slot frame mounts built in. The light mount runs through the frame along with pass-through for wiring and discharge/ return line. But the best part was teaching my daughter (10 years old) to weld.

Now with the frame complete it's off to powder coating. And it's back, wish it was really that easy. And now the fun begins
