This is clean AF!!!!!

The blue would bother me too... Reef Octopus instead? Or remove the unions and prep and spray them with krylon fusion.

I been contemplating on making the stand taller right now it's around 36" tall. My tank is only 16" tall. Thinking of making a riser around 6". Recommendations and input please :)

Build looks really nice so far, I would definantly go for the riser because the top of your tank is only 52" off the ground right now

Right... I don't want it to be a top/down tank. LOL.
Thank you

Question... how did you get all of the wires through such small holes? Did you cut them all and re-splice?

Would that be possible? Is it reef safe?
So if it is u could give every piece of equiptment the color u want?
(excusse me for the draft and poor english 🤐 im dutch So can't help it..)

Yes, Krylon Fusion is reef safe. Just make sure to use appropriate cure times. I use it on my returns that dont have loc-line on them. I spray the white PVC with black.

No. My equipment is not plugged in yet. Still trying to find a way to hide the power wires.
