    Spa hose is by far the best and aligns perfectly with PVC. Its a little more expensive, but it doesn't require all of the adapters or clamps.

    Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/291931379659
    This is braided flex hose from any big box home repair store. The braided mesh inside the hose keeps it nice and rigid, but will require adapters to PVC and auto clamps (or BRS sells a ratcheting plastic clamp that works well).

    Agreed. I have three tanks of that brand and didnt use any of those bulkheads. Plastic is way to thin.

    NOOOO. Your upper boards always have to rest ON the verticals otherwise it is only as strong as the screws you're using. 60 gallons times 8.6 pounds per gallon. Please don't risk it, those screws will corrode over time.

    Agreed.

    Lenny- look into a pocket jig. Think they are about 25 bucks at lowes. Or you can brace your uprights with two more 2x4s on each corner.

    Add 2x4s in between the top and bottom for extra support

    I will be putting a vertical between the two front 2x4's and will be adding bolts at the top of the verticals. I am going to have it setup like my 40b stand.

    Wait a second. Is this a 60 gallon cube build (24x24x24) or a 120 gallon 2x4x4?

    Your stand is not very "cubish" bro.

    I like stands with sides so I can set stuff when I'm working in the tank on it the other reason I'm going to use my current sump ATO tank so it need to be a little bit wider
