Hopefully this is how it will turn out! I won't be running a sump, my mom doesn't want me to because she's afraid of a flood. So what I'm doing is I'm going to be hiding all the hob equipment.

I really like your idea of having the back part of your stand. It looks real nice on the sketchup model.

Yeah that's what I really wanted! I might not go with the same canopy however. I'm gonna go with a bracket and hang my LEDs off of that

Aw. I was hanging a light over my aquarium at one time and it still looked really nice with a rim, so it should still turn out good.
