I'm so glad I have two of these Bad Boys ready and waiting for this build!-- one for each 150-gallon tank. (Rated for 300-400 gph.) I have no idea why you can't buy these anymore, in any size. (?)

New models came out with a smaller footprint for todays extra small sumps. Also DC controllable.

The new Fiji LoPro 2400 ghp 24" overflows just arrived today. Should be overkill (just like the over-sized Hydor skimmers) for 150 gallon tanks, but I want some messy-eater FOWLR fish. ;)

nice! fiji cubes sure do make some nice gear. I have there little peninsula nano and love it. have always been curious as to there overflows, I have hear goods things about them.

on a side not i am looking at a wall in my living room and was....maybe I could/should get 2 matching tanks from joe and to the same..haha

let me go measure it.... ha

I have gotten only as far as getting the two stands into the house, side by side. (The tanks are still boxed in the garage.) I dropped in my Seamless Sump pieces for rough-fit, and all is well. This job will take a LOT of plumbing, thought out in advance, because it will be my first time with a UV sterilizer and a sulphur denitrator.

BIG shout-out to @ Joe Glass Cages. The fit-and-finish on these stands is Grade “A.” I’ll get to the tanks after the stands are stained.

OK. The tanks have been sitting on their pallets in the garage for about two weeks or more, and I only got as far as painting one stand-- but today I had the chance to get two very strong friends to pick up the 1/2" glass, 150-gallon tanks, and lift them 36 inches up onto the stands, so I jumped on it! The one is sitting in it's proper place on the floor, so I'm just getting ready to leak test it today and tomorrow.

This game is officially ON! ;Happy
