Please post a build thread of this aquarium. It will inspire others and maybe you can both get and give ideas how to move further. A build thread will also serve as an journal for yourself.

Sincerely Lasse

Tank came out great with the sanding and polishing.

I did the same sanded and polished it was really scratched up. But I got the tank for $400 was a great deal
