Finally finished assembling the stand! Still had to flip it on sides to put screws in after I had shimmied and leveled it and had to take one side off and relevel it, but it is finally done. I didn't have any more patience to fool with the doors so I'll put them on once I get them all moved over and have had good rest and gain back some patience.

Here are some of the tank, UTH installed, and egg crate, then finally sand. I ran myself out of sand, I'll get more tomorrow. I've grabbed 3 of 7 out of the 40 and into a tote and am watching for others.

Looking great!

If your using tapatalk to upload, one way I found to get it to work is just to edit the picture on your phone, save it, and then upload the 'modified' picture.

Eg, increase contrast by 1, zoom in a little, add a filter ect

I got to the tapetalk picture limit, but took the free trail and thier service is only a buck a month so I can live with that to post my bazillion pictures... I'll start a new thread soon I think. Here's the last bit of the tank to completion.

Looking good! Did the filter trick end up working?
