    Decided to post my build thread on a 300 gallon reef tank. I have had anywhere from a 10 gallon to a 125 gallon aquarium and decided it was time to upgrade. Have had saltwater tanks for past 15 years previously freshwater before that. Enjoying the hobby so much and have learned a lot along the way. Here is my start. Tank and sump ordered all acrylic. Delivery day. IMG_20170516_135917993.jpg IMG_20170516_141304513.jpg

    Stand design figured out, built and stained, and laquer top coated. Built and finished in room as would be to heavy to carry. IMG_20170323_170831438.jpg IMG_20170319_214714713.jpg
