Thanks ccCapt. I will still check into it. I take all opinions and advice and try to do what works best. Not sure how I would change it now, though. Nothing's impossible. The store I ordered it through puts it under all there tanks. It's weird, I was under the impression I would void the warranty if I DIDN'T put it under.

I looked into a store bought stand, but they were all for tanks that go against a wall. The custom stands were quite expensive and I wanted to finish the stand like the walls. Like so...



I was trying to avoid the "piece of furniture" look.

Tagging along. Good luck. Your bowfront looked fantastic. What was that orange thing at the front? A Cabbage Coral?

Thanks. No, it's a sponge. PITA to keep. Can't keep the algae off it. It's one of those corals that belongs in the ocean. If I had known, I would not have bought it. I loved it though.

It took me two days to fill my 55G tank with a 50GPD RO/DI unit.. I can only imagine how long it's going to take for that haha. Btw, sweet tank. That 125 has excellent dimensions.

Yeah, I really wanted a more shallow tank. IME Fish swim by the rocks, not in the open water. So this way I can have a nice aquascaping.

I have a 75GPD RO unit. Actually, I have filled it twice already It killed me waiting. Had to drain it twice for different reasons. I'll get into that later.

I have to admit, I am supposed to be working on the production of my latest composition right now but finding it hard not to fiddle with the tank and be here on the forums.

Basically, I live in this room of the house. Other than sleeping and eating, I am here. I never got to see my other tank much because I was always elsewhere in the house working, or sleeping or eating Now, I see it first thing in the morning and last thing before bed and quite a bit in between.

this is also why I am obsessed with making it as silent as possible!

Cheers

Interesting thread..tagging along.

It seems like I have seen a pic of your previous tank..somewhere..

On the foam, you dont have to take it out; just slice it from underneath of the tank with a razor blade to relieve the pressure.. If you're concerned with it.
