I bought a 120 from someone on craigslist. This will be a project of mine I will start after I move houses in July. I still need to drill and start buying equipment for it. I was wondering if the stand that comes with it will support the weight of a reef tank. Click image for larger version

Don't know about the stand. I am using 2 taotronic led panels over mine and that is more than enough for what I want

She had no problems with the 120 and all that spending as long as I also set up a smaller seahorse tank for her, which of course I will maintain haha

Came home yesterday to find my return pipe came loose and sprayed about 25 gallons of water on my floor and shorted out the power strip for one of my lights

Ended up shutting this tank down this weekend. Couldn't keep up with the water changes on this tank with time and money being tight. But it gives me more time to focus on my other tanks and I did setup a 15g column with some of the rock I took out of it
