Love it. Really nice start. Can you go into detail about you wave engine and control 4 setup?
I have been using them for about 1 month and have no complaints! This, why I’m buying the hydros XS and adding more sensors. I run almost all of my electronics off of them and love seeing everything on the hydros dashboard (app). I want more notifications and just want to see EVERYTHING thats going on within my system.

what questions do you have and maybe i can assist.

While i'm new to the reefing hobby. I've been in wood working quite awhile the stand is incredible turned out great! Well thought out!
Thank you!! The best part about this tank is that when we moved into the new house… the trim & handles on the tank matched the kitchen. Lol. The wife was happy. If not, i know she would have made me change it.

I’m a carpenter, and I must say I do like your stand! It’s over engineered. I love the double up 2x4s to help add support(as I seen the first picture I was thinking oh man that one 2x4 won’t hold it, then scrolled and seen you beefed it up. My first thoughts before I seen that you doubled it up was notching a 4x4 to sit flush.) great build!
