Im still using my aquac remora skimmer and a BRS reactor with GFO. My lights are xen-lux 120w bridgelux leds.

No, don't paint the 90 elbow in the overflow. To do it right, you can use krylon fusion paint. But cure time is about 1 week, and it needs 2-3 coats.

I'd go with a schedule 80 elbow (these almost always come in grey). Much better looking than the white sched 40 elbows from HD or Lowes.

At least 24 hours on the silicone.

Door is mounted and child proofed. Haha. Also dropped in 15 lbs of rock. Just to see what it's going to look like. Im planning on getting another 30 lbs of live rock and using 50 lbs of live sand in the dt and maybe 5 lbs in the sump.

Looks great! I just got a 40b as well and am stuck at the drilling part lol.

Good job building the stand, the stand I have now wont even let me get a 10g under it. :-(

Good thinking.
