Yes it's particle board, but it's completely solid. I ran my 20g long SW tank with 75 lbs of live rock, moved it a couple of times in 2 years without any issues of warping. The table is surprisingly strong.

Thanks guys!


Trimmed the tank again about a week ago. The algae problem is slowly going away and the HC carpet has made a complete comeback. That being said the tank looks completely different in a week from what you see in these pics. I'll see if I can snap some tomorrow. It's due for another trim as well.







I still need to buy a real heater as you can see. Also need to run new CO2 lines as they're too short with the diffuser on the other side.

And for giggles my 12g after its rescape.
