Just an update, ordered some final stuff for the tank yesterday, refractometer, Tunze ato, hand tds meter, some 1.5" pvc caps, mod kits for MJ1200, and some garlic extreme.. everything but the ATO and MJ1200 mod kits should be here today, those are on backorder and expected in 1 week. Hitting the LFS (well not so local,1 hr away) for some Marco base rock and might get a few pieces of live rock too..

My tank is only drilled at the top as well... but I still have a larger area that can strain into the overflow. Still all and all it looks like a good start.

Thanks.. A friend of my wifes has a woodworking company and we had him build it to match the tv stand and end tables he has already built us.. Same style doors and stain.. He does awesome work, hes not cheap but its real wood not particle board and the stain is a custom color he made for us.. You could park an SUV on top of the stand and it will hold it, there are 2 solid Ash wood rails under the top and they are 3"X4" and the sides and back are 1 3/4" thick...

Shane.
