Go with the shrimp those tabs are made for pools and that liquid is made for cleaning. I wouldn't put any of that near where i plan to invest tons of money on livestock. And NO the shrimp will not smell!

I was talked out of doing a sump by an idiot at my LFS and started with a 60 gallon tank and canister filter, then got cured live rock. Decided to use a sump but the tank/stand combo had to be returned together. That's when I got the 75 and decided to build a stand. The live rock is in a bucket with a powerhead and a heater til I get this up and running. I have a RO/DI on the way, and I need to pick up my overflow kit tomorrow from the post office.

I started building the stand last night but didn't like it because the screws would have taken on the weight, and I want the wood to bear the load rather than the screws. I finished the frame tonight.

I plan on sealing the frame and drilling the tank tomorrow. Then making the stand look good within the next few days.

Here is a pic of the stand so far, let me know what you think.

Any tips on how to finish the stand? Plywood, paneling?

I got the kit in from glass-holes.com. Drilling the tank had to be the worst thing I've done so far. Got it done, and it's a clean cut, but it was nerve wrecking! Will be finishing the build of the stand tomorrow, and hopefully staining it!

you should add some easily removable panels or doors to give it a clean look. it will also minimze any sump noise.
