Original designs. I made the sump design in Unity, after I realised I have no idea how to operate in AutoCAD. We ended up modifying the depth from 40 cm to 50 cm. The center area of the cabinet, and the sump also got bigger by suggestion of the LFS, so it can hold all the water, when the pumps are off. We agreed on a custom Herbie overflow box, made by glass, and also in a top rim with holders for slidable glass jump guards(also reduces evaporation)

The transportation was a little tougher than expected. Especialy the tank, beacuse it's gets slippery super fast. We managed it with some minor damages. There is some small scratches on the bottom of the gass, and the upper rim has some small damages. I am planning on adding an edge protector to the upper rim, so its not a big issue. The scratches are annoying, but with water they are not really visible. Hopefully the sand will also help.

Water testing went well. The stand and the tank seems to be level. I played around with the overflow valve, and the return pump. Its tricky but there is almost no sound when tuned in right. Drained the water after a day of testing, used the return pump, and the ATO, and towels for the end.
I used these adhessive hooks from aliexpress, to find the initial positions for the controllers, and then added 2 sided adhessive tape to the back, so it can be fixed, but also removed with little force. I will look into walcro solutions, that would made it even easier. I still need to make drip loops when the build finalizes.

Added my aquascape. I used Gorilla Glue and white mortar for the structures. I am mostly happy with it, but there could be some modifications, when I got a few kg of extra live rock or rock from a closed tank, and when the sand added.
