Tanks over 180 gallons

Angel's 415g build thread

Postby angelsbeamer » Thu Apr 18, 2013 11:29 pm

So I guess I better start this thread with a few shots. I bought Vince's 415g in wall tank and decided to go from 2 tanks to one big tank. My previous tanks were a 265g and a 75g tank plumbed into one filtration. I had bought a 180g to replace the 75g but then ran into this deal. I am going to do quite a few things different than what Vince had primarily because mine won't be in the wall. I am proud to say that Vince's tank will stay in the club. So here are a few start up pics.

Some people need a Cleaner Wrasse or else they have to wipe twice!

Starting to frame the stand. I designed the frame so I could take it apart since once together it will not fit through any door.

The legs are 4x4 and there are ten of them. They were notched to fit into slots on the base and the top.

In the base I designed a pool for any spills (God forbid) and its framed out of 2x6 with rubberized under coating and then pond liner on top.
