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
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.
