Jman77's 150g Build

Alright guys, my new tank build has finally started !

The tank is going to be a Perfecto 150g (48 L x 24 W x 30 H) tank. Stand, sump, canopy, are all going to be DIY. Still not sure what lighting i'm going to go with, as well as what PS i'm going with... but, heck, at least the stand is a start The stand framing is mostly 2 x 4's which is is going to get a 3/4 plywood top, and then a laminate flooring side . Hopedully i can get the stand done in the next couple of weeks

Ah the start, it's always the worst.

Here is the frame... still debating on whether to skin it with plywood... i know it will be an overkill, but wood is cheap, and and it helps me sleep ,lol
