So I decided to make a 20 Gallon Long All In One tank which will probably be a frag style take.  I thought I would share my build to this point.  I started with a $1.00, per gallon 20 Long.  I ordered a all in one system from Bad Fish Reef Systems (http://www.badfishreefsystems.com/index.html) and let me just say, I was totally impressed with the quality, craftsmanship and service.  It came with the bulkhead, all three stage dividers installed, a top, the outside black back panel and the nozzle with fittings for $40.00.  I added the media rack to my order, which came in clear acrylic with two shelves. Looks great. I little black silicone install and good to go.  I put in a Maxijet 1200 pump. 

Then built the stand.  Started with a standard 2x4 construction frame. It's 36" tall, then covered it with 1/4" hardwood sheeting, ordered the door off the internet, added the top, built a bottom inside for a shelf, primed and painted it flat black with a coat of Poly on it and it's good to go..  Not too bad for my first attempt at building a stand. 

I decided on the AI Sol Blue as my light with the controller.  I ordered their 48" EXT mounting system with the 12" extension.  I wish they made it in 14" to just give me a little more length, because the 18" would just be too much but I like it.  It's sweet how it mounts and how adjustable it is...  Here are a few pictures of the process...

 




Just thought I would share my small 20 Gallon Long AIO adventure so far...Thanks for viewing.

Thanks, yes Ksmart I gave in to your peer pressure...  Ha ha....  It turned out very well.  It's a peninsula style set up.  From the ground to the top of the tank it's 50", which makes it a great height for viewing...  I am happy with it so far...

Ok here are some updated pictures. It's coming along wonderfully. I have added a MP10es, a Hydor Nano Slim skim, an ATO system. Adjusted my lights a little down from the Picts. Corals growing great.

Hey I just used the Aqueon black aquarium silicone. I bought it at Birdworld/Pet Villiage in Bountiful. It worked great. I have extra, no need to buy it.. I'll be back in SL on Wednesday night, so if you want to hit me up you can get it Thursday.
