Default Updated 4/2/2011. 40g breeder tank stand build with refugium

Stand is finished, updated picts on 2/19/11

I took a page from skaustin's book and built a stand for my 40g breeder tank. It is not finished, I started working on it yesterday and still have more work to do to it. I will continue to post picts as I go along with it. Here are picts of what I have done so far.

I have one side open, so if I need to, I can pull out the refugium

Very nice work. I am a big fan of 40 breeders - look forward to seeing more.

I recently built a new stand too! Its a lot of work but when it's done you get to look at it and know you made it!

Looks good so far!

yes I know. Everytime I build something, it's like nothing goes right and something doesn't look right. But when it's finished, you look at it and think wow, that looks great. I hope the end result is as good as I want.

Default new picts

I'm not as far as I want to be right now, but I'm almost there.
I dry fitted all of the pipes. I hope to get the glass cut tomorrow for the baffles, I hope to have the doors finished, trim put on and stained tomorrow. Here is where I'm at so far.
I put all of the birch plywood on it. The left side is only screwed on, so if I ever need to pull the refugium tank out, then I can do so pretty easy. I put the lights on it, just to see how it looks. So what do y'all think so far?
