Over the next few months, I am going to do a buildup on a FOwLR
180. This post may be moved to DIY
...not sure about that yet. The tank will be going in a local eyecare center here. I will start with repairing/reinforcing the stand and, hopefully, end up with the tank up and running. I am going to try to post detailed photos on each stage. Some things will be ordered from different vendors and I will post where I got it, how well it worked, ect... Other parts will by DIY
. On those, I will try to post detailed photos and plans although that may go in the DIY
forum and be linked to here. Pics will go in the photo gallery as well. I admit that there is a lot that I don't know so I hope everyone will speak up with advice, thoughts, and suggestions. I will try to post plans ahead of time so anyone interested will have a chance to post their thoughts on it before it goes together. Tank will have a sump, skimmer, refugium with reverse light, VHO
lighting, ect... I hope it will be something we can all have fun with and learn from. In the end, it should be a good basic plan for a large tank without breaking the bank. Having said all that, here goes...starting in my shop with the stand/canopy.
Edited the comments...didn't know about the 255 character limit...learned something already
