As it has been over a year since I posted to my tank thread I thought I should just start a new tank thread, since very little is the same as it was 1 year ago. As some of you know and some don't my wife and I had a daughter last December which put a lot of things on hold. One of them being the tank. Once things started to settle down I decided it was time to redo the tank. The first thing that had to be done was to build a new stand and canopy. The old stand was too small, and was starting to warp and rot. I looked around at different LFS to find a pre build stand and canopy, but could not find one that was the right size or had the look I wanted. I decided that the best option for me was to build my own. The stand is built out of 2X4's and 3/4 MDF. Here is my oldest daughter helping paint. I used 1/2" Oak Board to cover the the frame I then built the canopy out of 1 1/2 white board and covered it with the same Oak Board. The wood is stained with a Mahogany stain, and 5 coats of protectant. The inside of the stand and canopy are both painted with multiple coats of white base coat. Once the and canopy were built I was time to move the tank onto it's new home. Here are a few pictures of how the tank looks now. I am pretty happy with how the stand and canopy turned out. As for the equipment in the tank I am running 2 Lumenarc Mini pendents with 250w Radium bulbs as well as 2 48" T5 Actinic bulbs running off of a Icecap ballasts. I have a 35gal sump and 10gal refugium under the tank. The Sump houses the Euro Reef RS 135 skimmer, Mag 9.5 return pump, heater and carbon reactor.
