DIY 55gal stand with canopy

I used the plans from SKAustin great plans and then modified to exactly what I wanted, I used poplar wood, I also decieded to biscuit all the joints and add 3" crown molding to the canopy. I also made my stand 40" Tall. also used a lot of accent trim and then routered doors and other pieces Since this stand is going in my living room.

Today I started to make my sump Petco as a sale 1 a gallon for a tank so I picked up a 10 gallon.
