Yeah 95% done, good enough to start playing with tanks again. 1d87079652416d1fd0e0c6e95bed40c5.jpg before 64bb82b3551d1a3dc1d0baeded6f561a.jpg during 266847feec8c180482e99fc7f0451d2c.jpg repair

Added in extension to the back to be able to fit a larger ATO. Added a brace across back for higher power bar location. Filled in with some wood filler, did some sanding and played with some stain on some knot areas to see how they come out for another project.ae441d07350378661117d67d027c2c94.jpga5e5046ae7cd7cfd37793ef477444cee.jpg

So when you can’t decide on a stain color and decide to flip a coin this is what happens... 0a620a8e4ae012efaa96e777419b8702.jpg The color will actually work with a few other projects we are playing with and I was able to leave some of the stands old character in it. A little more paint for the inner section still to come.

Finally got the tank wet this evening after a little bit of plumbing. dcaf6835af1f436bcdaf315abe0b857e.jpg experimenting with a massive siphon break return. 9e8758af5eeeb15cb41793786cdb5821.jpg it legitimately gets a half a quart of back flow when the pump turns off. 54f47aa0561670cd7fdf6b10e0770fbb.jpg some of the plumbing is improv at the moment until I get to do a little tweaking b0611ed1ec236884a38513b0fc64ce9d.jpg modified the canopy slightly, might continue modifying or pull together a new design altogether.
