Going to cut diagonally through these joins to make the lid on top.

The bottom is going to need reinforcing along every join. It's only held together with glue and staples.

Sorry guys. Busy Easter.
I've mostly reinforced the bottom. I've attached a back though kinda ugly and started building the false bottom. Hubby lost interest :/ so it's been all me. Lol. I'll get some pictures later. It's still pretty early in the morning here.
I've got some exterior paint. I went with white. It's (apparently) safe for areas of rainwater run off used for human consumption. The tanks going to be topless so I didn't want to have evaporation dripping from the paint into the tank poisoning the fish.
