Did some work on the stand tonight and thought I would post some updated pics od where I stand at the moment

The Tank..

The Stand..(I know it is nothing fancy but it works)

The stand had a 1/2" piece of plywood on the top and bottom and was pretty beat up so I removed those...

....and cut some 3/4" pieces tonight out of nicer plywood that I had...

This weekend I am going to sand the stand down and apply some new coats of varnish and polyurethane. This ought to dress up the stand alittle more then it is now.

Filtration: Fluval 304 filter

Lighting: Double Strip Light with (2) 15 watt, 6700K Life Glo-2 Bulbs
Substrate: Mixture of Flourite and Gravel
