    Looks pretty good! For the light, I just nailed a ziptie to the center brace and tied up the clip to center it and keep it off the glass - it just leaves more operating room.

    more picts

    I thought I would be done yesterday, but I keep getting side tracked. I will have it done today, except for the refuge. I ordered tempered glass because it was 10.00 more than regular. I get it later on. Then I start the waiting game for the baffles to set. I am finishing the last door later, then I need to stain it. The stand it self is done. Just need to install the doors, do the refuge and glue the pipes. I will be glad when it's done. I will build a canopy for it in the near future.

    as long as, the baffles test out good tomorrow, then I just have to glue the pipes together and I'm done. I will be putting the doors on later

    I hope to fill everything up with water and do a test on everything Sunday. Thanks for all of the compliments.

    the stand is finished

    I still have to water test the refugium, glue the pipes and test the whole system. I hope to do the transfer by wed. That will be a headache
