thought id share my build yet again im using what ive learned and the equiptment I have i always want to use different stuff but sometimes it just makes sence to use what you got. I had to upgrade my 85 because my fish are getting massive even though I love that tank anyway I got a 120 off immus21 with stand. plan was and is to sump the tank although the stand is not very tall I just couldn't find it in me not to use it because of the great craftmanship. so far ive drilled in one location and added a overflow box it will run to a 36 sump with bioballs then to biomedia then refugium to sponges and carbon and to a in line pump back to overflow.

Ahh yes, that stand... Even when I knew I would sell that tank, I still put in extra hours to make that stand what it is. I'm really glad to see it still being appreciated :)
