Yes, that's it exactly. I was going to do a simple skin, but i thought it might be worth it to sacrifice a bit of looks for a good amount of utility. Bought some rails today. Will see if they help guide the platform.

What do you have the sump going to? Did you build it? I thought about one for my new 75 but the LFS recommended agsinst it. So I was think of getting a canister.

Sump is inside the stand/frame below the DT. The sump sits on a moveable platform inside the frame.

I finished setting up the tank and moved the fish. Here's the success of the move.

The completed stand




The finished tank


Proper color balance of the gravel


Cheers!

Thanks, Rick. We have our goldfish tank as our fun theme and the tropical tank as a natural theme.
