It is basically a sunsun filter that has been re branded for this company. Great price, and the reviews on it everywhere are positive. It is pretty dang huge!!!

I cannot wait either... I have to move at a pace that will not tick off my wife lol. I am allotted a small amount per month for my hobbies. So far this is the only one that is active lol. Next up is saving for the stand, most of the other equipment will come from my 36g which this one is replacing. Hopefully soon!!

It will be at a standard pre-built stand height, its perfect for viewing from my couch and chair in the living room, if it was in any other location I would get a taller stand, but I think the height will be perfect.

When I have the funds together to get one lol, I also have to save up quite a bit to get ahold of the plants, substrate, and I have to get ahold of the hardscape for the tank to set it up. It will probably be around Feb or March when I am really ready to set it up if things go as planned. The stand has to be nice since the tank is in the living room and my wife would have to look at it every day lol. The one I had my eye on is for the 50/65 gal tank at petco. It matches what I was envisioning for the tank. I hope to keep my 10g quarantine tank inside the stand, along with he filter, co2 equipment and my food and fert storage tubs.

Wouldn't that give you at least a place to store your filter and tank? LOL

that stand is large enough I should be able to get my filter, co2 equipment, storage bins and the quarantine in. The tank is going to be sitting in the corner of the living room at a 45* angle, there is some area behind the tank for items as well. It has worked out great for my 36g for the past couple of years minus the quarantine tank

I can tell you right now I cant compete with that price! But I am not a fan of those prefab stands personally. I have one that came with a wedding present and it is mediocure at best, and getting relegated to a plant shelf once the 55 is moved. It looks ok but I dont trust it to hold that kind of weight much longer. They are made from a coated MDF product which over time in High mosture enviroments breaks down (mdf is saw dust mixed with glue and compresed under high preasure to form the sheets).

I could get something built for around $200-250 for solid 2x4 frame, Panneled with Baltic Birch Ply, and trim. Could be stained or painted your choice. An I would bet the stand would outlast the silicone on your tanks. Let me know If it is something you would be intrested in.

We have a tank rim. Took long enough, the supplier kept sending the critter screened lids, and was eventually able to send the right upper rim. Time to start removing the old one lol
