    Default My 180

    Decided to upgrade to a bigger tank. Taking advice of the follow forum member to start a build log.

    Here is the start with a CD 180 starfire 3 side euro brace. Will update more pictures of the build the next few days.

    Thank you. I will try to take some picture when I get home. The tank is in place so will be a little hard.

    Here is some pictures on the cables. Pretty much I decide the inside of the tank and back of the tank into grids to mount and run stuff.

    Rock work and light.

    I am running 2 T5 retrofit and 4 radion pro. As for the rock I wanted to have mas much sand bed as possible so went with this design after acquiring 170 pounds of tonga branches.

    Clean set up! Wire management skills are amazing! All that wire duct must have been expensive

    It cost quite a bit but I couldn't figure out another way to hide the wire jungle.

    Very nice! Beautiful tank stand and build.

    How stable is that rock structure if you were to push down on either side?

    I'm also wondering how you plan to service or remove those power supplies and batter backups that are mounted behind your tank if you were to need to replace or repair them? Will the tank be several inches off the wall?
