Finally Done!

Here's my 55 gallon tank and stand. I built the stand from scratch and learned a lot of things I would do differently the next time. The doors are different sizes on purpose (the sump is behind the right side and I had no reason to have a smaller door on the side I would use the most). I wish I was a professional woodworker, now it's just a hobby that gets me more tools.

The inside of the tank is still being improved.

The plumbing was the most dificult thing to get going and with a lot of help from Logan at Captive Raised Corals and my favorite lfs, it's now working. Hopefully, it stays that way. I'll try and post some pics of that in a few days.

The lights are 2x65 actinic and 2x65 daylight powercompacts. I've got a fan blowing in on the right side of the canopy.

One more pic that was left off.

The cup contains some shrooms (fragged) that I'm waiting for to get attached.

Looks great! I wouldn't call that an amateur effort.
