Hi everyone, thought I would share my build progress. I have had a 55 gallon (not drilled) reef for about 5 years. Needless to say it’s not been the best of experiences lol. My LFS buddy called me one day and said he got a nice used 90 gallon in on trade so I said what the heck. I am in the adding water stage presently. Built stand myself. And bought new lights AI primes 32’s, new sump from Bashsea, Reef Octo 150, heres a few shots, I’ll update some more later, thanks for looking.

Wow that looks great! What’s your background to be able to make a stand like that?
I am a general contractor and have been specializing in custom wood projects for about 15 years. It is really cool the interior is actually sheeted with pvc sheeting. I’ll add some more pics soon, thanks.

Whoa I wish I had builder chops like that, the stand is dope! I love the pullout drawer! I totally need that for fish foods.
I’ve always liked that size tank, 90g, I bet you will love it over the 55. What kind of livestock you aiming to do?

Added sand and some rock, waiting on some shelf piece. Control panel looking good, would look better with some Neptune on it but not in budget right now, hopefully this summer.
