85G Tank Stand Build so far, steel stand.
Really the tank should take up the whole wall..... but NO.
So this is what I have 36x 24 x 24.

I am building the stand out of 35mm x 3mm square.

Aim is a large open stand with doors, ATO, AWC, sump and separate refugium to keep the light away from the sump.
Separate electrical cabinet on the end.
Wooden top... not what is there now!
Would be nice to add a ATS above the refuge but can you have both? any point to both?

Need to work out the size for each compartment.

I don't see why you count not have the ATS above the refuge if you build a small platform and have the room. Regarding the painting, I have seen others paint the medal stand at a powder coating place. Just a thought.
