Haha not much of a drinker myself. But maybe later once I'm all setup I will do a viewing of my new tank build slash frag swap. That event will be a BYOS (Bring your own Saltwater) hahah

That is a great idea using the stand as a baby cage. I wish I would have thought of that when mine were small. :P

Looks great so far! I will most likely be using a steel frame as well when I get my tank ordered. I just have to decide if I will be making it myself or purchasing it along with the tank.

Above the tank and not in the water is a starting point :lol: but really this is looking like a great setup, can't wait to see the progression of it.

Well just not sure what I want to do yet many great ideas out there but always open to anyone who has a good idea.

Yeah I was thinking 2800,00 worth of lights would look really good in the water. Really set the tank off.

If you have any question's let me know. This is my second steel stand and I've done a lot of reading.

This time around the stand was built by just a local client of mine, he works for himself he is not a big name or anything, and we did some horse trading which was great.


Just to give you an idea, on my last stand it was all done at a local shop (Steel Works) in Lincoln.
Steel cost me $500.00
Welding $300.00

Then the guy that bought my old tank from me had it sand blasted for like $110.00
and powered coated for little over 200.00 by www.kaserblasting.com

My new stand to sand blast was $130.00
and powder coat was $260.00
