Show me your 75 Gallon Stands WITH 55 Gallon Sump

Hey everybody...just looking for ideas on how to design a stand for a 75 gallon display tank and a 55 gallon sump.
I want to see how you do it and incorporate it so it's completely hidden underneath.
Picks are cool...no need for the exact plans.

Thanks!!

This was my original plan but the way I wanted to build my stand it wouldn't allow for the length of the 55 for a sump so I used a 29 gal instead. Interested to see some pictures

Not exactly, but close to what you're looking for.

75 DT with 40B sump.

Yup. It's close. Anyone else?
Thinking I'll design it with an end that pops off so I can slide it out length wise.

I have been building this on the weekends for a couple months. I finally have it cycling. I raised the sump for 2 reasons.
1. I wanted to be able to siphon the sump.
2. Wanted less head pressure on the return pump.

I raised the tank because when I look at my fish and coral its a pain to bend over.. Overall It seems to be working out. I also created a pretty nice baffle setup for the sump.

I really like how the doors kinda puzzle into the top border.
