    Here is my progress. Last Tuesday steel order came in. With the help of a good friend we cut and welded up the stand for the 75 gal and the 40 gal tanks. Thursday went to the local lumber yard to buy plywood and trim. Ended up coming home with a free 75 gal reef ready and wet/dry filter from the...
