Got the stands mostly assembled. Will also have 2 supports in rear and may need one in front. Hoping not to.

Also doing a 3/4 plywood top.

Thank you Marek! One day I will get upstairs done! Having this will allow me to do upstairs right though.

Once I get the 80 Frag out I am putting either a 180 or 150L where that is. Fish only. There are a few beauties I have always wanted but are not reef safe.

That will give me about 500 gallons in one system and 400 in the other.
