    Hi everyone! I was able to snap some pictures and upload them. I must say-I really love this hobby!

    The metal halides aren't on but everything still turned out decent in the pictures. On the side are my ATO bucket and calcium reactor. I upgraded to a bigger sump and had no more room in the stand.

    Duncan has about 72 heads! He extends about 5 inches towards the back.

    Well, I'm finally working on my stand ;)

    Everything you did makes sense, but I have a question about the top corners...how did you hide the fluted molding you mitered around at the very top ie looking down from above? Or are the contours of the fluted molding visible?

    thanks!

    Hey Hay!

    I'm glad you're able to build your stand! I just left them visible. At first it bugged me but it was no big deal after my livestock came in. You can put wood putty into the little holes and sand it very lightly or put a thin panel over top if you like.

    Share your pics when you're all done!!

    Nice stand. Pics of tank aren't showing up so I can't see them :-(
