Thanks

I made the cabinet from Ikea parts that were reinforced (this is a must). It is a wall cabinet with a gloss white ringhult door: https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/sektion...ite-s59345156/

I used adjustable solid metal leveling legs to brace the bottom shelf to the side panels and ran a 1/2" sheet of plywood across the back with angle brackets for some more support. On the top of the cabinet I shimmed and laminated a piece of the cheaper cabinet door also available at Ikea to spread the load of the tank down the side panels. The tank was custom built to fit the cabinet after I finished putting it together.

Full tank shot 15 days:



So far it has been going well. No real algae to speak of yet, keeping up with water changes every two-three days. Lots of growth and started pearling fairly heavy in the middle of the day. No signs of it here because this was taken at night, just turned on the lights real quick to get a snap.

Had a mishap with the rock space, the larger leaning rock fell over when I was cleaning it and uprooted some Monte Carlo in the back. I was able to get everything back and it is much more stable now. Glad it happened early on before I had shrimp or fish to worry about.

Waiting for another week or more before I trim and start fertilizing, want to roots to hold the plants as much as possible before a chance uprooting anymore.

Just over three weeks:





Image of my 18" ABS (painted) CO2 reactor. Have had this running since flooding the tank. Easily dissolves all the CO2 I need in my tank.
