Hello everyone. Its been over three years since I put together a tank due to moving and other personal issues. If you have been following my other postings those tanks have all gone to new homes because of my move.
Im back home now and got the ok from "The Boss" to start my tanks up again.
My dream was always wanting to build an Ada room with a bunch of tanks and different layouts but compromise narrowed it down to 2 larger tanks.
This will be first of my comeback builds.
I knew this day would come so I was picking up equipment slowly this past year to prepare myself and to ease the wallet.
I decided to go with the ada 120P for my first build and the location will be an addition to my theater room which I also just completed 2 months ago.
Thanks to Aquascapes here in Honolulu they were able to order this monster of a tank for me and get it here safely. Practically all my equipment was purchased there. Gotta help the local stores
First part of my build was my stand which i just completed today.
It is made up of 3/4in Red oak hardwood
I decided to make it like how i made my previous stand
its 36in tall and 48in long and 18in deep
I put it together first with a nailer to hold it together so that i can drive in the screws easier later.
I originally wanted to stain it a darker color to match the flooring but i think going with black will attract less attention to the stand since it will be a big piece of furniture.
Here is the completed product with the tank and hanging light installed
I will clean this up tomorrow and take some pictures of what i will be working with.
Thanks for looking. And to those that have followed me on all my previous builds, thanks for following. I'll try to keep a detailed account of this journey.
More pics to be posted soon.
