    Been a while but got almost everything done.

    Just some pic.

    After putting the tank on the stand I went ahead and build a light holder for my 3 light.
    Made from pvc pipe, y pvc? Cause pvc is cheap.

    Total of 300 watts daylight bulb on a 40B

    If you want extra peace of mind, glue the joints before tightening the screws. Clear Gorilla Glue is water proof.

    For stands made of 2x material I use 3" deck screws as I've not found 3" pocket hole screws.
    Kreg has screws for 2x material. Saw them at the wood show last March. Deck screws and drywall screws have a bugle head and could split the wood. It acts just like a wedge. I've done both, glued and screwed. Haven't noticed much difference.
    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
    Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
    What's a water change?
