I purposely selected a center overflow. I have an aquascape plan in mind and expect that this will work well for my application.

This overflow provides 17" of surface skimming which is excellent considering the size tank.

I think it looks awesome! I cannot believe someone made that by hand, it's beyond awesome.

I bet a stand like that, with that much detail would be like $800 in my stores. I was looking at a basic black stand for $300 lol You guys and your DIY stuff, I really wish I could do even half of what you did. I'm not being overly nice either, that stand is great.
