Finally got our tank delivered last week - measures 60" x 24" wide x 20" tall

Currently having a custom metal stand made out of 1.5" x 0.100" wall HSS

I'm not overly impressed with the build quality ( I didn't do it) and of course its one of those woulda, shoulda, coulda but didn't use concept, shame on me. I would expect them to come closer to what I wanted.

installed (3) 1" bulk heads, one for a return and two for a herbie overflow

overflow was supposed to be black plastic, and the upper trough was only supposed to be 2" wide - not 5"

I have access to a water jet table, so I might rip this out and build what I want. Input or feedback is welcomed
