This post is a few weeks overdue, but the stand for our new tank arrived in late March!!
It’s so pretty. There are five doors (two along each long edge, and one at one end) so that we’ll have lots of easy access to the refugium that will be inside. The sump and all of the pumps (and therefore most of the noise) will all be plumbed out to the garage. Kevin’s been slowly collecting bits and pieces of what we’ll need, but this is the first thing that feels real to me, since everything else so far could have been used to update our existing tank.
Another view, plus the custom plexiglass refugium and sump, still all in their shrink wrap:
