    IT LOOKS AWESOME! Do you possibly have any diagrams as to how you built it, or any pictures of construction?

    I'm sorry Zack, I don't. Bill and I have been in construction for so long, we don't need blueprints for something this simple. I promise I will take pics of the 90g build that will be starting soon.

    This stand wasn't built that strong, but plenty strong enough for this little tank. The 140g predator stand has doubled 2x6 throughout, tied together. It would hold up an elephant, LOL.

    Pretty near completion now. I finished building the cooling fan bracket for the sump:



    and the fuge light stand




    Got the tank wet last night:


    I also got the light canopy built last night, no pics, but it looks just like the one on my 2x4 frag tank.

    The sump with all the newly built "stuff" installed.



    Got the light canopy hung this morning, and the light installed. This tank is lit with 8 T5's, 4 actinic and 4 10k.

    And, I've started moving things over. Since I'm using fully cured live rock that is loaded with active bacteria, there should be no cycle at all.



    They seem pretty darn happy in their new home..........



    There is still a ton of stuff to do. I've got to soak the skimmer and move it over. Move the powerswitch and controller, transfer the macro over, and hook up the ato. Plus whatever else I run across in the process. Then I have to tear the old system down and move it out. That will be a chore all by itself.

    But it will sure be nice when it's all done and I can sit back and gaze into my shallow pool filled with tiny little saltwater flowers
