Default My 150G Display and 20G Frag Tank Build Thread

Hi guys
Since I have been speculating for a while on my Fragtank I have finally decided to go with a 20x20x10 cube. Jon from JCT custom acrylics is building my tank. Delivery is expected in 3-4 weeks. While I am waiting on the tank I have decided to prepare other stuff stand,lights and plumbing. The lighting will be provided by AI Prime on the hanging bracket. The stand is 23x23x36 inches. Here is a picture of my sand being built. More pics to follow....

nice looking stand very clean

Did you build it yourself? Is this going to be plumbed into the main display or running on its own?

Thanks Kamal. Yes me and my buddy are building the stand after I did my research on acquiring one but being 36" which is an unusual height I decided to build it...The plan it to plumb it to the main display and use the existing equipment and avoid more maintenance. Once I have sketches from Jon at JCT I will upload them as well. More pics to follow...Cant believe I have always followed other build threads and this time I am creating mine..time flies in this hobby...

I know its super exciting having seen jons work in sure it will look amazing. The stand height is great, I'm actually having a 40" high built if it ever gets completed :@
