I bought this 55 gallon tank cheap on Craig's list but it stood on a ugly metal frame. I'm not a patient person and set the tank up and stocked it on the ugly metal stand. My wife got sick of the metal frame so needless to say I got busy. It was a challenge to build this cabinet around the frame with the tank fully stocked. It's mostly held together with good wood glue and a few choice nails in just the right places.
