This design is totally custom, it was based on other member’s postings on this site. I had ordered the doors and made a mistake, so I’m waiting for them before a few coats of polly. Thanks for the help with pictures and tips.

I miss my twin 100 gal aquariums we kept as a kid. My wife says she’d kill me if I put one together now…. Your tank here is awesome! i want one!

Jeremy, very nicely done! The stand looks solid and well made. I really like the doors. How high is the stand? The height of the canopy should allow you to keep all your lighting equipment inside. What color are you going to stain it? Looking forward to see the tank with live stocks.

Simon, I’m likely going to with a natural colored polly. The wood is all maple with ply wood and 2×4 for the stand. I’m still finishing off the sump, it will be another few weeks before I start stocking it. The stand is 34inche tall and the canopy is 10 inches. The front of the canopy lifts up to expose the lighting, I’ll add some new pictures ones the rest of the panels are on it and it’s all stained.

I know its been several years since you built this beautiful looking stand and canopy but this is the first time i am viewing it… i recently just purchased a 92 gal also.. reaching out to you in high hopes that you might help me out with building something similiar.. so i am asking if you might have a listing of the measurements and material that you used to build this beautiful setup..

Hi Corey, I actually got some basic plans from another member and then kinda worked the rest out my self. I’m by no means do I consider myself a wood worker, but I think the final product came out really nice. I did have the doors made from me. Send me a private message and I’ll send the notes the other user sent me.
