i am back . 90 gal tank build
lol like it says yes i am back . i started on this site about a year ago when i was setting up my 55 gal rr tank . it was a sad day when i have to sell it due to moving back to Illinois from phoenix AZ . i had so much time and money invested into and since i only had three days before the move was going to happen i had to let it got complete for 150.00 . i told myself i would not get myself the deep just to lose again . but me and the wife missed are fishy friends .

well hears the story that brought me back. i was over working on a friends jeep one night and he started talking about fish tanks . i was telling him about the one i had when i was in az and how me and the wife would love to start another one . then the next day i got a call from him saying hay i got this 90 gal rr tank with stan and canopy i need out of my house if your interested in it come buy and get it . so the next day i found myself picking it up bring it home .

not to crazzy about the stan and canopy so in the next week or two going to be making a custom new one for it . i got the sump done already got the back painted with a black texture paint i thank makes it look killer . once the stan and canopy are 100 % done then i will go into more detail . here is a few pics as it set now . i will do my best to take tones of pics and update this as much as i can but it is going to be a slow build . money is getting tighter due to the fack the wife and i are getting ready to welcome are second child into the world in july

plz enjoy and follow along on this roller coaster ride with me

Congrats. At least you know the mistakes you may have already made so it won't happen again!

small update . me and my 3 1/2 year old got the skeleton to the new stan done today . this thing is built like a tank . today i picked up 10 2x4s witch cost around 33.00 $ . i bought the the good ones tho not the low grade just due to the weight this things got to hold .

here are a few pics of my little update . plz dont mine the mess . i have a few other projects going on at the same time

Looks sturdy. Lol. No such thing as an overbuilt stand IMO

The stand looks sturdy as h****. I did notice that you have a corner overflow. Did u leave space at the corner of the stand for your plumbing?
