Those of you with customaquarium.com tanks, how close is the final dimensions on your tank with their aluminum trim? They say to add 3/4” +/-1/8 for trim. Just ordered a84x34x27 and thought about building my stand and having it ready, or should I just wait to get tank and then build?

Just add 3/4" per their info. If your stand is 1/8 smaller or bigger it won't make a difference.

I just measured my tank for you. The aquarium itself is 30” wide, which is exactly the dimension I ordered. When measuring the frame end to end, it is 30 11/16 wide. So pretty much add 3/4” like others have said. Good luck!
