Swung by home depot today and got the wood to throw the stand/canopy together. Here's some pics of that process - still need to paint it.






(pay no attention to the 6' lobster - was given to me because of the forum name...)







Spent $5.69 on the wood. The lights were gutted out of a 24g nanocube a while ago, listed them for sale before this contest started up at $40... nobody bought them so I guess I bought them from myself.

Total so far: $45.69.

Nice start!

I like the clean, simple look of the stand, especially where you plugged the screw holes. Is that walnut plugs?

no those are the heads of the screws lol. I'm no master craftsman like you, but I can slap some 2x2s and plywood together.

I'm going to have some sand, LR, and a powerhead. Thats it for filtration.

Keep going back and forth on livestock but currently thinking a shrimp goby/pistol pair and a helfrichi firefish. Some cool inverts like a pompom crab or something, and some zoanthids, mushrooms, etc. Those bulbs in the fixture are real old and I'm gonna try and not replace them haha.
