Ok so ran into some very aggravating roadblocks, so I decided to skip the first project for tm and get a bit of work done on my stand, I decided to sand down my entire stand and smooth it and stain it a red mahogany. So above is the current pic. Word of advice to all, IF you ever decide to sand and restain a fishtank stand.....make sure you ft alot of sandpaper, time, and patience... as for the other project, it involves my empty 55g tank..... and if you're wondering if I plan on removing my tank temporarily, im not

Looks good, stand will look more updated now and spiffy.

Iknwothe patience game, I actually scraped off the painted background on a tank last week and it took me days of patience and bit by bit work. I will never do that again though. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thank you all its def coming along good despite my palm sander deciding to literally fall apart mid use... stupid 20 year old craftsman sanders. So far the top horizontal piece and the left center vertical piece are stained to match, need to do 3 more vertical supports, 2 doors, and each side..... why did I start this? Lol. On the other project, I'm seriously contemplating ditching my refugium for a 55g wet/dry, any inputs? The only reason I haven't already done it is because the current setup seems to be handling the load rather well. Im so afraid that ill do all this upgrading and it'll be crappy
