    I am continuing to work on the stand, also I removed the masking from the back in anticipation of fuge lighting as a X-mas present and for the ATO sensor. 20171207_153100.jpg 20171207_161550.jpg

    20171207_191521.jpg Waiting on ato reservoir. wasnt able to mount the heater the way I wanted because the cord is not long enough i am happy with how it look but I still want to make some additions.
    Its always harder to add things when the tank is full so I want to do it now,
    Any ideas for any more a I add to the stand

    Fantastic job on the stand and scape. Following along as I am working on setting up a Nuvo Black 30L.

    I have been following along with yours as well, how are you progressing?
    I love the dimensions of this tank, but I know you are going to drill one rather than go AIO which is super cool, but certainly more complicated than my build

    i raised the height of the overflows after noticing low water levels in NUVO tanks thanks DentistReefer413.

    Stand is 95% finished, going to add paper towel rack and shelf in the AM.

    I'm happy with the set up so far and getting wet tomorrow.

    I got it online (Etsy) and I didnt do a good job putting it on. Otherwise I am happy with the progress, thanks for the tips on the stand I added a bunch of panels and bracing and it is very solid now.
