Hi! So I currently have a 29 gal FOWLR running with a Eheim canister filter (separate build thread) and am a newbie as of this year. I have the following fish - 2 clownfish, 1 royal gramma and 1 yellow tail damsel. My new Seapora rimless, low iron tank arrived and measures 36x18x18, cost $230. I am pleased with the quality of it. I am having a stand custom built.

Modular Marine 1200 gph overflow (cost $150 with shipping) bean animal arrived. The blue piece is the template and protective covering is still on. I got the three fourth inch drains. Return pump will use half inch PVC.

My carpenter is really going all out to make a super strong stand!
All wood knots were filled with this glue and the skeleton is below. Note the extra support which the tanks will sit on. We also used Kiln dried wood from Lowe's. Screws were used instead of nails which is critically important.
