Great looking stand. You got the miters just right on the door frame and the routed edges on the raised panel mirror the rails and stiles. Very clever.

Thanks buddy. Def paying off going slow. Think I am going to order 15 lbs of dry rock from reef cleaners. I think that will be enough with what I have. I learned from the cube to leave room for when you buy stuff. Plus I can make a nice scape and putty it together before I even put water in to set it up nice.

Going to water test tomorrow while the weather is decent. Was going to do the move Saturday but am working overtime now so from Friday at 7 am until Monday at 7 am I only have 10 hours off. O well. Monday will be the day. I need to sell my cube to get money for the ATO.

Water test complete. Both held and didn't leak. Going to get some RO water later. Figure 20 gallons should be enough with what I have in the cube.
