I'm glad to hear that the shoe-shining business is looking up for you!

This is what I am looking at doing for my stand. This is not a model I built but one that I found that is very similar to what I want my stand to look like. I really like the idea of the sliding doors rather than swinging ones. I am still planning on making the stand a little taller than standard however not too tall.

What do you all think??

So I ordered the heatsink today. I went with 5.886"x24". I've figured out how I want to configure the LEDs and from what I figure this will work out pretty well. Basically it will be set up like 2 bulbs over the tank 14 diodes each side. I'm planning on centering the unit over the tank with a 4" gap between each configuration of LEDs. I put it on paper and measured it off. I think this will work out nicely.

Off to Home Depot to look at some lumber for the stand. I've decided that the above is pretty much the design I'm going with. I like the incorporation of the power box in the stand.

I also ordered a drill guide for drilling the tank. I've freehand drilled a tank before but I would rather have the guide. I'm going to be putting 3 holes in this tank and I will be drilling a 10g as well.

I wished my stands had sliding doors it makes so much more sense than hinged ones. Got to follow this build!

I have to find the slides for it before it is a go.

I've decided that the stand will be painted a chocolate brown to coordinate with the decor in the apartment.

Current dimensions are going to be as follows:

Stand:

40x24x40 (LWH)

Canopy:

40x24x12 (LWH)

The canopy I'm still up in the air with. I haven't decided exactly on the dimensions but I'm going to start here and see what happens. I have an idea for this but have to do some research and figuring.....

My Heat sink is on the way...should be here tomorrow or Wednesday. Bulkheads are on the way along with the thermal adhesive. All current ordered items should arrive by Thursday.

I backed out of the skimmer deal and have decided to order one. I've narrowed it down to the Vertex IN-100, Bubble Magus NAC3+ Bublle Magus NAC 3.5 and the Reef Octopus NWB110.

I've also decided to get an controller to run the whole system. I figure if you are going to do it might as well do it right!!
