@WayneBz Looks amazing. I really enjoyed working with you. We are so thankful to be a part of your journey. Most importantly, Thank you for your service and dedication to our country!
Thank you @Joe Glass Cages I tried to tag you all but didn't work and I enjoyed working with you also. I rushed and didn't cycle my tank properly so I did a reset. I'll definitely keep you up dated. I absolutely love my tank ❤

Sweet build man, I really like the skin on your stand. I was going to go with a Tigger sump on my current 270g build, but I wanted a 60" sump. So now I'm designing a custom one that I'll probably have Bashsea build for me. And from one vet to another, thanks for our service.

1st of thank you for your service also. Trigger also makes custom sump to the size you want too. I honestly never heard of Bashsea lol but a 60" sump is long as hell haha. I I did a 10 ft stand and with the 44" i still wish I had a little more room for different things. The skins we use some floor that was water proof and ended up being perfect.
