mp52dave's 15g column tank

Let the fun begin.

15g column tank - I picked up cheap off CL. This is the same one from PetSmart for $99. I really like the long box look...and hated the stand that it came with. My biggest concern is all the weight on that plastic trim part on the bottom - its not solid. I guess the stand went inside that plastic trim and the stand rested on the inside. I might need to make a support piece for under the tank or see about removing it. Not sure yet.

I'm in the process of making a stand for it - the one pictured is just the shell...I'll be putting more support on the legs, adding wood paneling, adding some trim to dress it up and painting it.

Ordered a Fluvial 2.0 LED 24in light - that might need to go back and will get a spot light vs bar light.

Got a few supplies in...for now I'm doing a AquaClear 50 hang on filter and I'll see if that works for me. Might do a canister down the road.
