    ^thx ryan.

    My stand is about 5" taller than the one at pruess. I am 6'1 and the top of the canopy is even with my nose.

    Still got alot of work ahead of me.....

    Gotta put another coat of poly on the stand and canopy, mount reflectors and lights into the canopy, hook up cooling fans in the canopy, install baffles into the sump, paint the back of the tank black, get a durso standpipe for the overflow, get the tank drilled for the closed loop....

    And I am working 4 double shifts and 2 single shifts at work this week...and next week....and the week after that....forever...

    Gonna try to get this tank together asap though- I have been colecting and working on it for almost a year. Its time.

    Nope- no plumbing with the overflow...thought it came with the overflow, but didnt. Was an extra $70. Pretty sure I can get a durso standpipe cheaper than that w/ a couple bulkheads.

    Also decided-

    Still gonna do dual overflow plumbing. Gotta have a backup plan, if one clogs up- I have heard the horor stories....the second will be an "in case of emergency" pipe, higher up than the durso, just an open pipe. If the durso clogs (or whtever else could happen) I will have the open pipe as back up.

    I will just hard plumb the return over the back as previously planned.

    Come on over sunday and get your hands dirty paulo! I got lotts to do, and wouldnt mind a helping hand!
