    The stand looks great! What stain did you use on the wood? Also, what kind of wood is the trim piece made of? I look the grain in that wood.

    Keep up te good work.

    The stain is called American Chestnut, and the molding is just a wood color piece I picked up at lowes

    finally finished

    all of the pipe work and refugium is finally finished. I will fill the tank and refuge this afternoon to do a final check. Then if everything goes right, I will be switching the tanks over thurs. I want to give the PVC cement time to cure. I fought to get the protien skimmer in, but finally got it right.

    It's still up and running. It was nerve racking trying to adjust the return pump to keep up with the overflow box. I might go ahead and take everything out of my 29g and put it in this tank tues insted of thurs

    It's going to be fun draining the freshwater out of the tank. Even more fun doing the tank switch
