I got very lucky....got it on Ebay for $250 (with the old lights in the thread that rkilling linked). I think eventually I will move the 30g reef tank into this tank and buy a drilled tank (this one is very scratched) and move the planted tank into a 75. I like the stand so much i'm hesitant to sell it even though I don't really like 55s. But all that is down the road after I finish my thesis anyway!

Wow! That is a gorgeous stand!

I know you changed your lighting - is the first pic your new lowered lighting and the second pic of your higher lighting? That second pic is bright. If they are different lights, can you post which pic has which wattage?

The pics are the same tank lighting....in the first pic the camera's flash is on, second it is off. I was trying to show how the stand looked so i posted both shots.

I didn't change the wattage on the tank anyway, it still has 2x96 watts. I went from 1 6700K and 1 10000K to 2 50:50 (10000K/actinic) to reduce the "plant available" wattage. The intensity is the same. The tank is bright; but it doesn't really look like the second pic, that was just the camera struggling with the weird lighting!

Thanks - that helps a lot as I plan out my lighting (and stand) purchases! I did wonder if the picture difference had to do with the photography and flash or the tank lighting!

I also have that exact same stand, but I have a 60 gallon tank. It is 4 inches taller than a 55 gallon. I'll take a couple of pictures of it today.

Here are a few pictures of my 60 gallon tank. The camera wouldn't work to good without the flash.
