The stand looks awesome I would definitely invest in the octopus skimmer or the Aqua C both great skimmers. I actually own the insump Octopus xp2000 cone Skimmer and I'm very happy with it.

Stand is looking great! Nice job. Maybe I'm blind but I didn't see an electrical outlet...

Compact lighting is good for corals that don't need much lighting. If you want to have some of the fancier corals your going to need to get either T5 , MHL or LEDs.

Did you add it in after the first pic? That's what I was going off. I just saw bare walls. I just brought it up because it would be something I would totally do. Get it all built and the. Realize I didn't have an outlet. Lol

With what u got goin with the location of the tank and wanting to build a reef I suggest a sump/refugium, moves all your equipment underneath in the cabinet and easy DIY
