    My current set up is very limited due to my stand and sump (20L).. plus my DT is not RR or drilled......
    I'm going to switch to a 75gal RR with a 40B sump and a bigger and taller stand.....I've been trying to do the switch since a long time ago but for one or another reason that haven't been possible.

    That is one fantastic looking stand! Excellent job. When she gets properly set stop by and I'll give you some sticks.

    I still have to build the canopy and my friend is packed with work so I'll have to make it myself.....this is what I'm planning to do so it match the stand.
