Default Spitfires 75G low maintenance home office tank build

so lately ive been spending alot of time in my office at home and decided to spice up the room, currently i have a paludarium in the office but decided to go with a full reef to keep my entertained. Hoping to keep it somewhat low maintenance

75g with custom corner overflow
Steel stand (built by me)
Plain old sump
vertex omega 150
hagen glo dual bulb t5ho fixture
apex neptune system
tunze powerheads

Building stand at the shop (1x1 hss), seems a little small but according to autocad it can support the weight no problem

Side of office cleared out and stand in place

i dont like to put doors on my stands as i find the inner workings of a system just as interesting as the display itself

Tank... so long story short, i dropped it about 15 minutes ago, dont worry i broke its fall, unfortunatly my knee broke the bottom panel

this will add a bit of a delay to the build but im fairly certain i have another glass panel that size somewhere in my shop

Lesson learned tho, dont go up stairs while carrying a 75g tank on your own
