Finally! I saved up enough money for a Red Sea Reefer!!! Actually, thanks to the power of craigslist and silicon I was able to restore a reefer that had a leak. I am by no means a expert at reef tanks nor DIY builds, but I guess we can learn together. A little background about me. I have had a few tanks, all reef. A 75, 65 and now a 54. Most of the ideas for this tank were not created by me, but rather a fellow reefer with an awesome tank. You can check that out @Broadfield also I post some extra content on my Instagram account Matt.Mildren Lets get Started! https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/34676403174/in/dateposted-public/ Like I said I got the tank off craigslist. Only $50's! https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/35478408046/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/35386968071/in/dateposted-public/ It did have a leak, but it was very small and easily sealed. Because the RedSea silicon is so thin, I figured making a wider seal would help enough to keep water from seeping, It worked!Along with this I gave the tank a good bleach bath since it was VERY dirty! https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/34676462314/in/dateposted-public/ After many... many trips to Lowes, I got the wood and equipment I needed to take on this build. After going over all the purchases, the stand costed about $170 to build. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/35386965081/in/dateposted-public/ I got the main frame together after cutting out the overflow box. The back didn't fit properly, so another trip to lowes https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/34676471194/in/dateposted-public/ After I got the back refit, it fit great! The side panel thats open is supposed to be for electronics and cables. After a good sanding and filling in nail holes with putty, it was time for the doors. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150604741@N07/35386951001/in/dateposted-public/ After I got the hinges attached, IT WAS READY! Well... Not exactly, I need to still trim down the wood so that the door closes without hitting the other. Along with this, They were uneven. Time to go back to lowes... Updates to come!
