Beautiful tank. You mind sharing the steps on sanding and what all you used to paint the tank with? I just got a 160 gallon salt tank and the stand is very similar to yours and i want to paint it white as well.

The stand was just sanded with a medium sandpaper... painted with a high quality spray paint... rustoleum semi gloss I think... spray paint gave a better smoother finish than brush... but either will work... nothing to it!

Ok, to my eye it is very nice. I like the mix of corals especially the gorgonians and soft corals which don't seem to be in fashion. They look great in yours.

Looking great.....what’s on the bottom of tank? White abs? Or other plastic? Also is the back painted black or some type of insert/plastic.....how often do you scrape back to keep clean?
