Peyton's return to the hobby

So I got out of the hobby a few years ago due to not having enough spare time for tank upkeep. Honestly it felt good for a while not having the responsibility. But after a while I started missing having a tank. I had sold most of my old equipment so I pretty much started from scratch. I did have a 40g breeder I bought about a year ago but never did anything with it. So this past winter I began assembling equipment together for another planted tank. My plan was for a medium light/high tech setup. After assembling some equipment I decided to build a stand. Pretty happy with the result. For lighting I'm using two beamswork 2100 lumen led fixtures. They are a bit low powered, 29 par at 12", but so far so good. I'm skipping some steps here lol. But here is the progress so far.
