I like the tray. Very nice!

Thanks! I had Scott build me the tray and siliconed it before the paint coat so that will hold about 7-10g of water just in case it leaks :)

Brought the sump inside and silicon a piece of wood to the stand! That will prevent water from getting under the sump when i spill water!

Thanks Troy! It matches very well with the skimmer! The return pump is Vectra L1! This thing is a beast! I used it on my leak test yesterdayand had to dial it down to 60%! Super quiet!

Tank is still dry! Been busy and I am still waiting on the light and one more mp40.  But i managed to put some dry rocks in side the tank. I aimed for minimalist scape but still ended up with a bunch of rocks lol.  Hopefully i can get sand and water in this weekend.

Dont mind the tape label there lol

All I saw was tape.....

 

This is looking so nice I'm envious, my tank "room" is a disaster, ADHD has taken over any OCD that may have been present in that little thing I call a brain.

 

Keepin it 100

 

GREAT JOB!!
