I've decided to upgrade to a new 125 gallon reef ready tank. My current 72 gallon is ok for now, but eventually the corals will grow so large, there won't be much room for my fish to swim comfortably (excuse I gave my wife). I just wanted a new tank. My tank will arrive this Friday, so I thought I would try my hand at building my own stand. I liked the DIY videos for framing it, but I want it to be a little more decorative; which will be the challenge. I'm not a contractor, so don't be too hard on me. It is level and plumb:

Once the tank is in, I will post more pics of plumbing and tank setup, then the moving of all my rock, coral, and fish.

Looks great man 100% solid, spray it with water proof paint or something to keep it dry for many many years
