My corner tank and stand build

Hey guys I have built a corner tank out if old windows dimensions are 32x32x18x12x12. I know that's to many measurements but the picture1 will explain them. I cut all my pieces to the size I needed and laid them out in the order I would silicone them together, picture 2. After that I used type 1 ge silicone and put all the pieces together. Picture 3, 4, 5. After that I tested the tank for leaks. Picture 6, and no leaks after 3 days. Now for the tank stand using all my tank dimensions I cut all the boards needed to make the stand. At this point I started to put it all together. Put the top and bottom together then I added the legs to the bottom then added the top. I put a few braces across the top to help support the bottom of the tank. I silicones a piece of 1/2 in styrofoam on the top of the stand got the tank to set on. Out the tank on the stand and started to fill it with water to help to hold the foam board nice and flat while it dried. In my next follow up post I will cover the stand with pallet wood to finish the stand off.

Got the tank set up in the house today. Going to get pallets to finish the outside of the stand later in the week.
