Almost finished the stand today...



Just a little more sanding and some paint. I was going to build it out of Poplar but I'm done spending, I think. :)

Tank - ADA 60P
Stand - ADA knock-off
Filter - Rena XP3
- [strike]Powerman pipes[/strike] Acrylic Pipes
Lighting - 70W HQI
Heater - Hydor in-line
Substrate - Aquasoil
Co2 - #5 tank
- Matheson miniature 2-stage regulator
- GLA in-line atomizer
Ferts - EI

Wish me luck!

Looks awesome! I love the natural wood. I usually like the grey stands

You can call me Bob ;)
You are looking at plain old 3/4" MDF. It's going to be grey.

Awesome! was wondering when you were going to do another tank, wish I lived closer so I could learn from watching you build that stand, its awesome
Thanks everyone!

^ Thanks! I guess building all those sub-woofer boxes when I was younger has finally paid off.

Check this out:



That's how you want your Lilly pipes to arrive. They actually weren't broken.

I never noticed my dog in that pic before. Kinda creepy.

That fragile sticker means they need to drop the box harder ad kick it around more.
lol! the fragile and "live plant" stickers mean nothing!
I would say 90% of the packages that come to my door with a fragile sticker have been mangled. Silly postal workers.

I got most of the stand painted this afternoon. You can only apply so much oil based paint in one day. That stand soaked about a pint. Thank goodness it's still hot here.
