There we go! I was wondering when the tank shots would come in. That looks great! I really like the design of that stand. Very clean looking, espcially for using all 2x4s!

Are you planning on leaving a large open area with all the plants on your little driftwood island? Or will you fill in the right side also?

Not sure if I will add plants to the right side later but right now I like the look of the open area gives the fish a open spot to swim without going threw plants
