    DefaultMonster Build

    Have currently been working on demolishing the storage in the closet downstairs. Building a stand and cabinetry. For installing a 200 or 300 gallon aquarium with a sump underneath the stand.

    What part take for this build and stocking.

    Changed the floor and painted.

    Lumber was purchased from Lowes. Got a good deal on some slightly damaged lumber. Received plywood from my neighbors who is a contractor. Had extra lumber for more projects later.
    Lumber was $300

    The stand took my brother, dad and myself about a week as we kept arguing, hahaha.

    Was looking on prices for getting cabinetry done, but everywhere was too expensive. Purchased a Ryobi router (in French "Destroyer") and a router table at a garage sale.
    Ryobi Router $150
    Router Table $50
    Total $200

    Used the router to edge lines into 1x2" lumber and glued in 1/2" plywood for the doors. All the moulding was stained in American walnut.

    Have added some pictures and will continue with more of the build along the way.

    Got some updates for this build.

    Purchased the sump from Fiji Cube. This is there Fiji 36-Advanced Reef Sump 2nd Gen.

    The sump is related to the triton method, but can also either use filter socks or filter box. Sump is 36L x 15W x 16H. The sump can handle up to 300G.

    Currently waiting for the aquarium. Aquarium will be 210G.

    Megalodoras uranoscopus 'Irwini', Platydoras sp. ‘shallow scute’, hoplosternum littorale, comets and koi to grow for my pond. Maybe a ripsaw, but will transfer before it gets too big for the aquarium.
