    300 gallon community tank in work

    I'm ordering acrylic 96x30x24" tank with external overflow on the side which will be my discus community tank in my living room. I'm still working on sump 48x20x18" but not final yet. Yesterday, I had good friends came over helping on stand. Here are some pics.

    Nice beefy looking stand, and great friends to help out

    You might want to consider making the front from a series of smaller boards vs. once big sheet like the back… it's plenty strong already.

    You can also save $ and weight on the side panels using thinner ply, 1/4" or 3/8" would easily work on the sides

    What are your plans for finishing the stand?
    Déjà vu: it's that feeling you get when you hit your thumb with the hammer a second time

    Another week went by. I found a local guy who cut the door openings. Here are what we have done on it and can't thank you enough to Derrick, David, Tan for their helps. It should be done soon, just need some touch up and stain it in cognac color with clear coat on top. It's getting closer and closer and very excited to get it running.
