Canopy in progress

Posted 02/15/2013 at 07:38 AM by Avonlea,PA (My Journey into Reefkeeping)

I've begun working on the canopy for the tank. I was going to wait a bit, but then realised I could do it using some scrap plywood and one new sheet. I'm working on another furniture piece which had some leftover wood, so it just made sense. I didn't take many pictures of the build progress, but here it is in rough form on top of the stand:

Leak test

Here is the crate that the doors came in:

Stand almost complete

I put the final coat of paint on the stand last night. It's looking really sweet. All that is left now is to paint and install the doors, which are expected to arrive tomorrow by FedEx. I also completed the electrical today. I now have a dedicated 15 amp circuit behind where the stand will be, as well as a shared 15 amp circuit ( the new circuit is the one with the 4 outlets in the pic below). I also put a low voltage access in the wall to eventually run an Ethernet line for the Apex that I will...
