are you planning on running the bulk heads on just one end?

With a weir, yes. Herbie overflow (so a durso and a stand pipe), 1 emergency above water level, 1 return (with 2 locline), 1 drain directly to house plumbing for water change purposes. Everything with ball valve.

Practically the same plumbing as Joey with his 375g. Mine will be 240, and my 2 main drains (herbie) are 1.5 inch, opposed to his been 1 inch.

Osb will cause swell when it gets wet.

Looks good, I am building a acrylic sump soon I hope. Cut most of the pieces last week. Waiting for some weld on 40. To arrive.

Hey guys some updates. I've waterproof the top of the stand with polyeurethan and cut a foam piece. Starting to build the tank slowly!
