    DYI 180 Preview

    Found this jewel in the classified.
    I am sitting here figuring out how I can modify this beautiful CFI custom to better fit my needs. I will be working with Jason on the mod to be sure to keep this 180 structurally sound.
    The tank is 49'' X 39'' X 24'' This use to be Tysons256031 tank
    I will be doing an in wall build.
    I will be starting a new build thread in the near future.

    Is this one the one that you built the stand for? Or is it going to be another one? This looks great. Is your head spinning yet? I know you have some ideas flowing.

    Thanks for looking Shane. I do have a couple of "outside the box" ideas in mind. Stay tuned.

    I built the stand to hold a 440 gal tank. Sorry to say that size tank will not happen. After much thought I decided something smaller would be much more practical.
    My head has been spinning for about 6 days. Ty and I agreed on a price about a week ago.
    My ideas for this large build have been flowing around in my head for well over a year now.
    This tank will put me at least a year ahead of schedule.
    There is still so much to do!!

    Understand about the 440. I had bought a 448g tank stand canopy 2 skimmers 3 iwaki return pumps sump ro/di unit. I got it all cleaned up, filled it up, outside!, let it sit for a week. No leaks! Was excited!!! Brought it in the house on a wall that got no sunlight, stepped back, looked great. 2 days later, got home and saw the tank, still empty, and it smacked me in the face, "what am i thinking?", i ended up selling it for 1400. I only bought it for 600. Got my 215 in a raffle and cant be any happier!

    Thanks for looking Todd, just a little tease for those of you that have followed my earlier builds.

    Pandora! Wow I am not crazy, thinking that way.
    Seriously it is good to know someone else has had the same experience

    Having a detailed plan B is just as important as having a "Flawless plan A" LOL
