Here are some pics of what I have done so far. Still need to paint the inside of the stand. Roughing in some plumbing and electrical layout.

    Clayton, the stand overall is 100.5 inches long. There will be approximately 3 feet of countertop on the left side. The actual stand for the tank portion is 60.75 inches by 25 inches. The countertop section will be used for a frag tank setup eventually.
    Thanks everyone for the compliments.

    Update: Went and picked the new tank up Saturday. Once we got it on the stand and started cleaning it the wife found a bubble in the glass. We took a picture of it and emailed the owner of the business where purchased. He said he would contact Planet on Monday. In the meantime we then found a scratch on the side inside the tank. Called Monday and he said bring it back and we will order you a new one, 4 to 5 weeks out. When i got there today to return it they had a 60 x 27 x 27, 3 inches deeper than the original purchased. Long story short he swapped it out at no charge. Thankfully I made the stand deep enough so it fit right on.
