Hi guys, I figured it was time to make a build thread.
I have a 75 gallon tank, and a 20 gallon tank that will be used as a sump. Working on getting it put together right now. Here's a tip for all you future sump-builders. Don't get silicone on your hands. 20 minutes of hand washing, half a bottle of gojo, mineral spirits, and a scotch-brite pad later, i got 90% of it off. lol
Anyway, I have the two tanks, my stand is built and the paint is drying, RO
is sitting on the table waiting to be setup, display tank drilled, and not nearly enough funds to keep going at the pace I want!
I will be getting a pump for the sump here in the next few days, then filling it with water and letting it cycle.
Here is a picture of my home built stand. Also my first woodworking project. It was built with a chop saw, circular saw, and nicotine.
Should I put a layer of styrofoam on the top of the stand for the tank to sit on?
