Starting a 125-gallon build. Only hiccup so far is getting the sump in the stand.
So are the bracing glued or screwed or both?
On a previous stand the one brace was removed and a some stainless L-Brackets and stainless screws were used to put it back in place.
Maybe someone has a better suggestion.
I can't tell from the Pic but are there braces across the top where the tank sits?
If not are you able to lower it through the top of the stand?
Like Amy said, if its a marineland stand, the cross bracing on the top of the stand is only held in by a couple screws. you can take the tank off, unscrew the bracing, drop the sump in the stand and put the bracing back in.
Yeah, I will have to do that. They did not use screws, they used a nail/stape gun.
Ugh how are the braces in back attached?
@mattlucero54 just be aware that if you drop the sump through the top of the stand, it isn't coming out in one piece unless you remove your livestock and remove the tank from the stand.
if the sump cracks or a repair is needed, it'll have to be done though the door opening.
Yeah, its the same way with my current tank. Not ideal but id have to make it wor .
Painting the back.
How'd that go for you? One coat good enough or will you need to do a few?
I turned a flash light on from the inside to see if it shined threw, to get zero shine thrpugh was 3 coats.
Back finished and rock scape done (I think).
You'll like having those educators, be aware the more pressure from the pump that goes in the more effective they become.
