Well I guess its time I start a build thread to keep track of the 120's progression.:) I'll keep it short and let the pics do the talking.;)

First I'll start with a pic of the sumpless 55 gal that most of my critters started in.

Then starts the building of the stand,plumbing ,and filling of the tank.

Finished the stand. All sides are magnetized for easy access.
