Ya I was thinking of just leaving the back off of it because it is gonna be against a wall anyways for the humidity issue but this is more or less a practice build for my corner tank that I plan on starting in a few months.. since I'm new to SW better off making mistakes at this level you know lol

Indeed if you are going to make them, how is the time to do it. As for the back being off, I think that will depend on how close to the wall its going to sit. You certainly don't want mold or salt creep all over you wall. I have seen similar sealed stands done successfully with a fan exhaust system set up inside them to pull the humidity out. In fact one I saw had a plant set next to the exhaust fan that thrived because of the humidity.

Man, that looks awesome. I wish I could build something other than a perfect sub : ). Looks good, I even liked it before the panels were added, but that might be my minimalist side.

What do you guys think about covering the glass seems with the corner trim... I think it'll give it a real simplistic look

It looks good, my only concern might be if it will take away a half an inch of viewing space. Its going along nicely, congrats.

*update* Went out and got some live and lace rock to start cycling while I work on building a sump for it... hopefully ill have the sump built and running in the next 2 weeks

*was referred to a little lfs about a half hour away from a co worker and it turns out to be the best lfs around... they've got live rock and corals on hand along with about 20-25 SW tanks..and not to mention about a foot and a half wide tortoise that just roams the shop haha

Looks nice, but attachment might be an issue, unless you're going to use glue.

It would be just a super tight fit between the canopy when I make it so I can just jam it in lol... I don't think I'm going to though but who knows.. if I do atleast I could just POP them in and out
