    So my current plan for the closed loop will be having the inlet in the back and have the two outlets return through the bottom alternating with the sqwd and try and hide them with rock. I have a couple pieces of rock with round holes in them so they might be of some help. Any thoughts?

    My aquarium is at my house...but I haven't seen it yet unfortunately. I can't wait to get home tomorrow and check it out then drill some holes in it. Luckily before I go home we are stopping at the Baltimore aquarium...to bad I forgot my camera...

    Looks great, Malac! I really like the dimensions on the tank! How much was that part?

    Subscribed. This should be fun to follow along with. :)

    $423 with one side starfire. I'm excited and nervous to take it out to the garage and start drilling holes lol. Hard part is gonna be getting the locations for the glass holes overflow that is currently in my 90. Maybe I can email em and get a print out template ...

    Edit: oh that also counts the shipping charges $63

    Thanks 2in10. I got my diagram from Glass-Holes and I will hopefully begin drilling tomorrow. If not I will at least mark everything and get better pictures of the tank. The thing is definitely heavier then I expected and looks even better in the light.

    So today should just about finish the stand and drill some holes in the tank. Just wondering how people finish the inside of the stand in case it gets wet? Do people epoxy it or just polyethylene seal it?
