    Well after a long time my tank should be holding some water soon.  Finished the stand today & started the internal overflow.

    I probably will. That is why I am going to get tank set first & then trim it out.

    When i did mine, i was told a incorrect number from some smuck at the fish store of what the height was. So i had to build my platform up 3 inches higher which in turn really screwed it up.

    man you l;ook like you need your diaper changed in that pic.
    and i like the way you are putting your alphabet blocks to use as a support for the plumbing.
    and you look like a girl, get a haircut.

    looks great.

    Well here is a few update pics

    I opened a valve on one of the drain pipes & it filled a five gallon bucket in under 9 seconds so with 4
    drains I should be able to flow 7200 gph if I wanted to.
