Thanks Everyone.

I finished trimming a few inch off the side of the stand today since I have pretty much just a bit over 8ft, where I want the tank. The tank fits just Fine that stand didnt but im ok now.

I sanded it down and gave it a fresh coat of paint. Buying new hardware for the doors and adding a patterned trim to the doors and overall frame.

I also picked up a Fluval fx5 canister filter.

I'll keep you guys updated as I go on.


Upside down since I had to cut the bottom frame
