I know this is a planted forum but I thought what the hell I will share my new reef build awaiting the tank to come in it a double corner 6x2x2 predrilled. Started the stand today framed it out need to put two braces on the top and bottom then I can put the outer shell on. If you ever saw the build for my planted 180 the stands will look the same since both tanks will be side by side. Going to run a 75 gallon sump from my basement for easy maintenance and to reduce flooding potential. Also hoping my tank will run cooler since it runs at about 80-81 even with the air on. Would like to get down to 77-78. Anyway hope you like watching this build

This is my 75 I am upgrading
