95 gallon Cube Display Tank with Custom Stand

Recommended Posts

I recently obtained a 95-gallon cube display tank, after my brand new 75-gallon exploded while drilling the drain hole.

Anyways, I finished setting up the new tank build this evening and wanted to share it with you all. 

The stand measures at 40x31x37 and was constructed out of fir. I also used deck screws all around and metal supports at the corners for stability. Soon I'll go around the outsides with a nice cedar trim, and put curtains on the sides that I left open for sump access.

For now, since the majority of the stand is complete, all I need to do is finish adding water, and then wait for the s*** and sand to settle. Then I'll be taking pictures of what really matters! 

Cheers!

Michael

My guess it's a poor man's sump and the smaller tank is the return area

Oh wow, that completely makes sense.  The little tank regulates the water height of the big tank.

I'm actually going to be using some 1/8'' acrylic to separate things out. The small tank is for some breeder Darwinian Island clowns, and the rest will be sectioned off for a skimmer and return area.
