Design, Planning & Setup:

We choose a 120 gallon tank because we liked the length and were combining three saltwater tanks into this single tank and need something with some room to grow. AGA 120g Cornerflow Tank

The stand was designed to accommodate up to a 55 gallon sump as well as side doors and an extra wide front door for easy access. Since my dad was building all of the stand, canopy and tower for me, I had to design some drawings for him to go off of.
