Yeah the stand is custom. My lfs has a local carpenter build them for the tanks they sell. I even made a few changes just for my setup. The doors at top open to make feeding easier and I have a large opening at top that is piano hinged to make easier to get in tank without having to completely remove top.

I'm curious about the wood frame around the tank. I want to build something like that

The lighting on this tank looks nice! I used drilled and rodded my rocks. Got the idea for Mr_X! I love my tank now.

I like how yours looks too. I want to keep as much rock off sand as possible, especially with the hight of my tank and limitation on length.

Comgrats. I like duncans and most of the flowing corals. Mine is not really going to be reef safe with the fish I want.

Looks fantastic! I love how they turn out when drilled. I didn't think I will ever do another tank w/out doing that to my rock work.
