About two years ago I decided I wanted to try to build a diy plywood tank. First I thought I wanted a 80 gallon tank but by the time I was done it was over 200 gallons. That winter I started to build the tank with plywood and fiberglass resin. It definately was work but it was worth all of it. Once I built the tank I started on the stand. Wood is a lot easier to work with than fiberglass resin! By mid March of 2001 at the age of 15 I had built it!
