Ok addicts the stand has moved in from the garage YAY!. The sump needs to be dropped in from the top so here is a shot of the stand with the top off. That's the wall the tank will permanently house. I'm really liking the color contrast between the expresso colored stand and the wall. Since the stand base is metal it weighs about 300lbs. The 120 will have to be moved and the stand will have to be centered on the wall prior to dropping the sump into the stand. There's no way to push the stand without bunching up the carpet. (patience grasshopper) I keep reminding my self to be patient.
I took this picture at night to see the color contrast under different lighting... ehhh I'm not sure I like it anymore... I'm debating painting this room or wall a different color. I kinda wanted a blue wall so the back of the tank wasn't yellow LOL... OR... I could just paint the back of the tank blue the same way I painted the 120. Still debating... not sure yet.
That's all for tonight...
