Getting started on semi-massive project

Guess what I'm going to finish building this weekend?


It's a stand for my 2x20gal longs.
(I still have some internal framing/ support to do. But so far I'm happy with the way it's coming out.)

The reason it's so short is because the aquariums are mainly for my 2yr old son, who's only 3ft tall, can see into them. Rather than up to them.

I'm actually going to be chopping this down because I was making it long enough for both 20gal long and my 10gal leader. But decided to just go with my 2x2gal longs for now and use my 10gal as a QT tank.

I'll also be making hoods and dividing one of the 20gals as a Male Betta condo. I'll post more pictures as the project proceeds.

Looking good! My hubby is making me a stand for a 20L too but won't let me see the plans or nothing. He didn't even let me pick out the color of the wood but considering last time I picked out wood for a project it was purpleheart that is understandable.

lol. Actually Purple Heart is a very pretty wood. But all my stuff just gets painted black to match the rest of the stuff in our apt.

You'll have to post pictures when hes done.
The one I'm making now is just temporary while I save up to make a better one.

What kind of hood are you going to be using for your 20L?
