  1. doors are done, made up some out of dressed pine and done them in the same stain as the front panel. decided to hook up both external canister filters either end of the tank : larger one is full of mainly course sponge, bio noodles, coral rubble, to create heaps of good bacteria colonisation.. and the second medium to fine sponge,charcoal,macropore & a few layers of fine filter mat to keep the water looking clean. now to sit back and enjoy
