    My 220 Build

    I have been planning this build for awhile but was afraid to drill the tank, my plan is to build the tank as a Penninsula tank, the tank is in our lower level with a concrete floor. I am planning on using the tank and the stand/canopy to hide the joist support pole. The stand was built using 2x4's and 2x6's, a 40 breeder for the sump. One thing I want to make sure I do is to make sure I can pull the sump to clean it out from time to time

    Line the bottom with a pond liner. You'll thank me later. Also, add a piece of pink insulation board under the sump. That concrete transfers the cold pretty well.

    I did my 125 but I even got a leak in that, the floor in the basement is a vinyl tile type floor, so I am not as worried about it as I would be carpet, plus we hope to have the in floor heat working by the time it gets cold again
