Pretty much dove in head first on this one lol.
Tanks are on the way!
Picking up stand tomorrow. Will need to be slightly modified to hold 2x 80 gallon frag tanks instead of one monster tank. Should be fairly easy with bracing inside the monster stand @104" long.
Biggest obstacle I see is going to be full tear down of current system and set up of new system.
Going to do one tank at a time over the course of a couple weeks to make this transition as smooth, fast and the least stressful for my livestock as possible.
Not what I originally had in mind for upgrade. I wanted to keep my original 2 custom tables running during all this but I'm all in at this point haha. Go big or stay home i suppose.
Love the depth @16" on these tanks.
Should be able to get super creative inside with my shroom gardens and be able to do alot more at the same time.
I'm not very worried about breaking new system in. I pretty much set up and stocked my current system almost fully in the first 3 months of operation.
System is dialed and as stable as it possibly could be at this point. Using my sumps, my rock and my water during upgrade so should be all good... I hope haha.
Anyhow more to come.

Hahaha thank you for that man.
Out of all the craziness last cpl days it occurred to me when I started this thread that I haven't taken any pictures at all and I've been back and forth to fish store so many times they think im crazy at this point hahaha.
I'll grab some when I get stand home hopefully tomorrow.
Gonna need some input from some of the wood working cronies on how to brace the stand for sure.

Not much I can find on tank yet but I'll most likely be customizing return and overflow. Looks like I have plenty to work with just cant find any build threads using these tanks yet.

Probably going to put a tank on each end to cover the drilled holes. Use middle cut out for access and little work station.
Think if I brace the back bottom and replace the 2x4 that are missing i should be ok?
