That stand is looking great! Can't wait to see this thing come together.

I think I probably have 4 of those swords in various shapes & sizes plus a Disney-On-Ice Buzz Lightyear light-up sword (I didn't even know he had a sword) and a couple of Jedi Lightsabers w/ sounds... I trip over 1 or two carrying my buckets to flush the old tank water when I do PWC's! So I should be able to make a really fantastic tank stand!! HA!

Lol. Yep, we have them everywhere, too.

I've been piecing this together for a couple of months now. I just about have all the pieces in place. This weekend, I'll finish the stand and put baffles in my sump. By next weekend, I hope to have it up and running. Not in too big of a hurry. Plan to run it for about a month before even considering adding fish. I am anxious to see it run, though!

Nice! More than half the fun is saying you built it when people admire it! And I love doing something totally new to my tank every week or two. You can just see people's mind being blown as I explain how it works. I guess people just think fish just need water to swim in & I was one of those people before I got into real fish keeping a lil over a year ago!! I kept Bettas, turtles & various reptiles/amphibians as a teenager but had no idea what I was doing.

Excited. Picked up some 1/4" acrylic at Home Depot for my sump baffles. Had to cut it myself, but wasn't too hard. So, now I have pretty much everything I need to set up the tank. We just have to paint the stand (and paint the room it's going in). It should be up and running next weekend!

Any suggestions on sand? I want the kind with crushed corral, and plan to do live sand. I kinda like the look of some black in the sand.
