The Dining room was my little fort for a while. At some points it was hard to walk through the room. Im sure many of you know what I am talking about.

I stained the stand myself. The first pic is with one coat on. I did not mix the stain all the way. The original color was a little lighter. The stand is all oak. The second pic is the final stain. There is a big difference.

Thats all I have found so far. I do have a lot of pics so I will more than likely post more. I did this thread kind of weird but ive been busy. I do have many questions. I do hope that showing this simple setup will help someone.

The hole in the back of the tank is for wires. It is not actually in the sump itself.

The first question is what in the world is this thing...

There are actually two of these little things. The one is larger.

Another question would be is it normal to have a little bit of condensation on the inside of the sump. Its a wood stand I am just curious.

Seems like you are off to a great start The little red "alien" looking blobs are Foraminiferans or "Forams" for short. Say the long form 10 times fast :P They are filter feeders and quite beneficial. Condensation on the inside of the sump? Is there proper ventilation in the stand or do you have any fans blowing in/out fresh air?

No I do not have any fans. Only hole in the entire stand is my 2 in. hole I cut with a hole saw for wires to run in and out. The thing I am worried about is I put an outdoor powerstrip on the inside of the stand. I have been checking for moisture... non yet on the powerstrip yet I dont want to take chances. After looking at the tank what do you think I can do. Fans does not sound like a bad idea. I could put fans on the door on the far right side of the tank. It is a little service door. This would make sense. Its just humid inside the stand/sump area.
