    What is a baton? I googled it but what I saw is not what you mean....

    I had a steel stand for my 300, it alot of weight. I had a roll out cabinet (shell) for looks. As to baton, i believe its additional cross members making more squares and helping distribute the weight...its a lot of weight!! Grats on getting it going!
    Life is tough, it's even tougher if your stupid.
    If your not angry, your not paying attention...

    Steel would have been nice.

    Yea, I was thinking about doing that.

    Sorry I never realised you replied asking what a baton was, just another big hunk of wood, like you've already got going from front to back. Was just an idea for extra weight distribution
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Tank was moved into the house yesterday! Took 4 friends plus me to move it in. I am going to add a few more 2x4's to the stand.

    I won't be working on the setup much this week as I need to prepare for a land speed race this weekend.

    Post more info/pics soon.

    isnt this the truth, i just bought two 55G tanks with a stand for $100, to get them up and runnings is a few extra $$, i cant even imagine a 300G tank,the cost of everything.

    Installed the tank... took 5 people and knocked 2 small holes in the wall lol. I had to crop the tank photo. I used 5% tint for the back glass since I did not want to paint it. I am amazed how well tint works. My 120g reef uses it and looks amazing plus if done right there is no salt creep.
