    Well then you can definetly get a refund since it was there mistake,I would take it up with the manager.

    In the mean time you should contact Harley since he is in your area and get a price on a unit to fit inside your stand he can build it in two sections and have a large bulkhead and union and valves to connect them together.This way if you have to ever remove it easy dissasembled.

    Well, at my wife's insistance,I ended up doing what I did not wanted to. :hammerhea I pulled the whole tank/stand assembly and was able to squeeze it into the stand at the location I wanted. :lol: Now I have to get two smaller tanks to make up the sump/refugium section. I figure I will need to get 3 holes drilled in those tanks, so that I can join them with the filter unit.

    Fun! Fun! Fun! :bananadan

    Oh yeaaa.... The will was mostly "The Boss". :lol:

    Yes it will be. The trays slide for easy access to the media trays. The only drawback, I think, is that I will have to remove the skimmer to have full access. Tho, I might locate the skimmer in the sump/return area.

    The lesson learned here is that I should have waited for the tank/stand to be setup before purchasing it. But nooooo.... I was to eager to get it. :bounce: I have about 22" to turn and this thing is 26" long. Good thing that, from the back, there is more space available between the vertical braces than from the front doors opening.

    Patience....Patience....Patience....

    Well the main thing is that it fits in by the back and like I mentined they are units like a rubbermaid so you wont have much servicing to do on it,except for the Wheel and tray section which should be easy to remove from the front of the stand since they are movable parts.

    and that's why most of us spend $$$$$$$$$ in this hobby... not enough patience!
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!

    Indeed, it is quite sturdy and the wheel and trays are easily accessible. I actualy had to remove the support brace and squeeze it a little to make it go through.
