yup it turns out to be a 500 gallon. 88.5''L x 41''W x 31''H
here are pictures of the build
the stand
we got a welder to weld it up

after a few days...

drum roll, the tank.
with the nailers there is a 2'' screw every one inch of the tank. :D

this is were the glass is going to sit in




We added nailers ( 1.5''x1.5'' fir ) to add tons and tons of strength. Also we will not be drilling into the plywood making the over all design stronger


level tank

the nailers :)

there are a few small things we have to still do, but thats almost it. The glass gets here in 10 days so we have some touch up work and doing the plumbing for the sump.
