My 40b build with 20gal seahorse tank.

    I've been out of reef keeping for a couple of years. I have recently acquired a couple of tanks that have sparked my getting back in. My plan is a 40b display tank with a 20l refugium, and plumbed into the same system a custom made 20 gallon cube for dwarf seahorses sitting next to the 40b. This is my progress so far. I am building the stand myself and completed the frame for it today. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It was the deal I had to make with my wife. She wanted seahorses so I get my reef as long as she has those. Haha.

    Looks fun. Are you going to paint the ends of both tanks where they meet?

    Out of curiosity what do you plan to feed the sea horses.

    I wasn't planning on it. There will be about a 6" gap between the two.

    If I bought the materials, would you, or anyone be willing build a stand for me? I need enogh room for my current cube but built big enough for the future 90 cube I am planning on. Enough space for my rectangular sump. You're project is looking great.
    Thanks

    I was able to get it skinned and the doors figured out today. Trim going on tomorrow, and hopefully the doors built they are going to have glass inserts that I'm going to frost.[​IMG]

    Trimmed! Just needs some sanding and some filling and then it will be ready for paint. [​IMG][​IMG]
