Love that stand!, I just got a Peninsula Mini 25 and Xr15 Blue as well! Went with a random stand from Amazon as of now. But eventually will get one made. Looking forward to following along.

Thanks man. Congratulations on the MP25. Great choice on lights too. Let me know if you have a tank build on here or IG. I’ll give it a follow.

Starting to see tiny pods on the glass. Looks like the bio bricks I added from my WB 130.4 are helping to establish the tank. Planning to add a bottle of Apex pods next week.

where did you find this stand? Doing a similar set up myself.
I had it custom built. Spent months trying to find something that was a good fit and matched our home decor. I was unsuccessful so had to go custom route.

Very cool, what are the other gear plans?
Here's a list of gear for the tank:
Lights: Radion XR15 G5 Blue
Controller: Apex EL
Return: Sicce 1.0
Heater: 2 x Eheim Jager 75w
ATO: Duetto XP
Flow: Nero 3
Lid: Kraken Lid
Filtration: Intank media basket (1st chamber), Maxspect bio block (qty 4) middle chamber.

Not sure about dosing yet but most likely will use Kamoer X1 pumps for 2-part.

Looking really good so far, I will be following as I'm about to order my waterbox 25.
Thank you!

Looking great! Following along!

Much appreciated.
