180 Gallon build

so finally getting this thing started

couple weeks ago my dad and I built this stand. Wild cherry with black doors.



after waiting 3 weeks the tank was finally done and we brought it into the house (4 large men carried it and it was still crazy heavy)



also mailman paid me a visit yesterday and brought me a koralia wavemaker 4 and 4 koralia 4 pumps



for the past month and a half i've been seeding about 100 pounds of baserock in my 55 gallon tank that had already 60 pounds of liverock



up next will be the plumbing.....

Stand looks great! You guys must be cabinet makers or something.

It's a glass tank right? Digging the rimless look, not seen too often on larger tanks

Canopy is fine as long as it isn't ugly, just saying they don't make large framless tanks much.

What lights are you going with? I imagine you'll have to find something creative to penetrate the eurobrace
