You guys are awesome!
I know you're all disappointed it's not the 125, but I got scared. lol
Allen, I totally intend on taking you up on your offer to help. I think I do want to mimic something similiar to your stand, since this tank is up in the living room I think I'll prefer to have a canopy on it, if we can get over the heating issues.
I have 3 fish left in the 46, that a member from the local club is hopefully picking up this week, then the tank will be free. I intend by the end of the week to have the LR
and/or BR on order so it can start curing while we're working the stand and lighting stuff out.
DT, what you said is pretty much what I was thinking I'd do. Thats good to know about your experience and that it meets what I was anticipating.
Maybe for our next local meet we should have it at my house, with power tools and a "stand building demonstration" and tank setup class.
