I ordered the same package and it was delivered today as well! I was able to assemble the stand tonight.

Interested in seeing how your setup progresses.

Well, I’m in a holding pattern as I’ve been dealing with Red Sea for a week now. Tank had an issue with the front seam and they’re sending a new one. As soon as the new one gets here, updates will continue

While I’m waiting for the replacement tank to come in. I’m starting my cable management now.

Replacement tank arrived now to make a little progress. Focusing a lot on cable management since there’s so many pieces of equipment with this thing.

Finally got cable management completed. Built a small riser in the equipment side of the stand to hide all the power blocks. I was worried about heat so I purchased a small fan and mounted it to blow air over the power blocks. Everything is pretty much tidied up and water is next. Once I add water, I will get all the other equipment set up on reef beat and get the ATO ran.
