    Well, after being dormant in the hobby for the past few years, we just picked up a used 75G center overflow (just like our original 75G), a Maxspect Gyre TR150, and what appears to be a Corelife cone skimmer 75G (not a great option, but should be adequate with a smaller bioload. We also still have all the live rock from our old tank. My DIY LED build unfortunately didn't make it, and I don't have time to do a new one, so I'll be looking for some cheaper used LEDs in the near future. I've also still got a 30G long that will be a great sump, I just need to add baffles and bubble traps. Lastly, I need to build a stand, and get some sand. Anybody have a decent stand plan for a 75G they would be willing to share?

    Welcome back!

    I roughly followed this design with my 220g stand. While you might give @jlanger an aneurysm because it is overbuilt, it works well.

    Hmm, it seems a bot edited my origional post? The last sentence appears to have been deleted for "asking for items to buy or sell." To my knowledge, I was simply asking if anybody had any tank stand plans they'd be willing to share.

    Is everything going under your stand? If so you may want to go with a 1" thick board instead of 2"... depending if you are better at woodworking than most of us.

    Yes, I have a 30L that will be going in. I'm also planning on a diy roller filter and possibly an ATS. I did plan on doing 1x4 framing and either going with tongue and groove planking or plywood sheeting.
