Cool my new 29 gallon

okay so i just got a 29 gallon tank. free from a kind lady on Freecycle what a great place. so I going to start a journal of the setup, heres my plan for it so far.
1) clean the tank
2) get a canister filter
3) build a RFUG like hoppy https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/di...-past-diy.html
4) build a stand and hood (going to take a basic wood working class at the local college for this, i know the design i want for the stand but don't have a good work space or good tools to do it right.)
5) put it all together
6) enjoy my new planted tank.
7) later on after i save some money, buy a CO2 system
8) later after that build a DIY auto dose system.

Great stand! Are you planning on adding new rims to the tank?

This is a different looking stand.(not a bad thing) I am very interested to see the final result of the stand being built, and then with the tank on it and planted. It is looking good so far, and I am going to have to keep up with this thread and see how it all comes together.
