Hello everyone. Thought I would document the build of our brand new Red Sea Reefer 525XL Deluxe. Been on this forum for a while, had a 55g reef tank in NJ for several years. Even with hang on back everything, plus a canister filter, it did very well. We moved to NC this past summer, and did not bring that tank. I knew I wanted a larger, more "state of the art" tank, and i did not think it would be fair to the inhabitants to make the move, they probably would not have done well. So, that entire setup is now in a pediatricians room in NJ. We are settled enough in our new home, so time to go bigger and better. The tank/stand was delivered last week, and today I got the stand built. It was very easy, took about 2 hours. Pretty much done by one person (me), my wife helped to move it around, it gets heavy fast. Here are some initial photos of the stand build. Still have to adjust the hinges a hit, but other than that, stand is done. Next step will be entice a few guys over to help carry the tank from the garage to the stand. Probably offer some beer, but not till tis moved. Don't want them to drop the darn thing!
