It's 36". It's not going to bow anything. a 2x3 pine frame is plenty to hold it. The plywood skin is not even necessary.

I asked for pictures of the back of the tank to see what the overflow looks like. The stand is a good quality wood and is painted with mildew resistant paint. The stand is not drilled, just the tank. I will post pics of the back once I receive them.

Alright below are the pictures of the back of tank and the plumbing. The guy started this tank but then bought a 225 gallon setup instead. They also have a 90 gallon for sale since he upgraded.

Thanks for the offer but 65 is a bit bigger than I am comfortable with for my first attempt at saltwater. Also your zipcode is almost 4 hours away from me.

So, he cut 2 holes in the back of the tank and then glued an acrylic overflow box to the inside. That should work fine. What doesn't make sense is that he has two 1" drains that run into a single 1" drain. An easy fix though, if the flow isn't enough for your liking. I think it's a fair price and a decent setup.

Looks good to me, I do have one concern and maybe me x could chime in on it. The baffles in the sump tank are tall, thus the water level will be high which could cause overflow issues in the event of a power failure. This is caused by water draining from the display to the tank but not being pumped back up.

Those high partitions are lifted off of the bottom. It doesn't matter how tall they are, water will still go under them.
