IM EXT 200 Peninsula Aquarium w∕ APS Stand - White

sooo... I am looking for people to help put the tank on the stand.
no stairs. slide the tank from the garage, go by the front of the house, front door and here we are.
I believe @Srt4eric can make it.
I am located in Redwood Shores and I am thinking Saturday morning - 10ish.
 
It's crazy that IM does not include leveling feet! I was cringing when I saw you had a 3/4" gap to shim. Awesome solution.
I don’t know why they don’t do it, pretty sure everyone must be asking them to do so. If I visit their showroom one day I will ask. Makes no sense .
 
I believe the water filled tank will be too heavy for the leveling feet. Disaster can happen.
Some aquarium builder who also use aluminium stand use some.

Plumbing is progressing. Right now I don’t know where to put the UV , that thing is so big . Lay flat along the sump, or vertically against the wall near next to the tank but it will be very visible . I can’t make up my mind

I am just dry fitting right now to find the best layout. Accessibility, easy to maintain. Feels like playing tetris sometime
 
To change a bit from plumbing I started to work on the light hanging system. So far so food. I will add a steel cable too to keep it level . I have to find a thin black one with a tensioner and will attach it to the extremity and the top of the bar that’s on the wall.

I can definitely see the influence of bay_area's build (which is meant as a compliment!). Out of curiosity, what program are you using to model your plumbing? I can't actually act on anything for the next ~5 months, so I'm just working on planning mine out.
