155 gallon build

Recommended Posts

Tank has been setup for a year now here are the specs.
 155 gallon AGE 60" X 30" X 20". Starfire glass on three sides regular glass on back PVC bottom and Plexiglas Euro braced top. 3/4" thickness on all sides, tank itself weights 400 lbs.

Aquarium originally came all the way from LA but I picked it up in Santa Rosa.

Stand was built by my Friend Kirk whom is a welder.
Stand is 43" tall had it  powder coated black. 
Equipment. Apex, HY water blaster 5000 return pump,OM 4 way with Reeflo dart for closed loop. 2 x Next media reactors on for gfo one for carbon, Jabao dosing pump, 2 X Radion Gen 3 Pro 1 x Gen 2 Pro Led, Skimmer is an  ATB 840 tunze auto top off.
I found a Trigger systems sump in CL for a decent price.

The build took me a lot longer that I would like but it is finally started because we moved and were remodeling the house mainly had to get the floors done before setting up the tank.
Here are some pictures of the build

Sal,

Hangers were custom made by a friend of mine that is a welder. They are square tubes that are welded to the back of the stand. The hangers themselves are just a little smaller so they slide into the tubes and are removable 

He is the one who built my stand. I was his helper in the project. I did all of the grinding and cleaning up of the welds and his just concentrated on welding.

Very thankful save me a lot of money. Took it all down to a local powder coating place near my house.
