Deep Reef's 150 gallon tall DT hurricane Irma build

Well today I put it all together,


Used corner clamps for alignment.

Put the frames together, used 1x3s to support the sump area and attached them with pocket screws. I did this instead of using 2x4s like my last build to give me a little deeper water retention area in case of a leak.


Then assembled the pieces

The stand is a foot longer than the tank as Ive created a side compartment to house the controls. To give me as much room as possible I also pocket screwed the vertical 2x4s in this area.

Originally the plan was to make the stand 36 high. However, when I was rough fitting things it seemed too high. I wanted to be able to see over the top rim of the tank. I dropped it 1 inch to 35.
