    Tank stand info

    We are purchasing a tank and a stand. The stands are secondhand and slightly larger than the tank. There is lots of information about not overhanging a tank on a stand, but can a tank be smaller than the stand? Or photographs of stand with tanks on have the tank sitting on the outer edge, and I...

    New Tank

    So I just got a 125 gallon tank for free, found on roadside. I was talking to previous owner and she said it was filled about 3 months ago but she couldn't take care of it after her husband died. I need to clean and and do a leak test before I do anything with it. It came with the tank, stand...

    55 gallon tank stand

    So I’m starting a new tank which is much larger then any I remember my dad doing. He is no longer here to help so I turn to you guys! I bought a tank and stand used. The tank needs to be sealed properly, they used it for reptiles and while cleaning it, there are a few leaks. I’m pretty sure I’ve...

    Nano tank stand sitting on tack strip?

    Hey all, I have a couple of questions for you about stand placement! I've got a 7-gallon rimless cube on a 32" tall heavy duty wire rack (the tank sits directly on a 1" thick slab of hardwood). I live in a fully carpeted fourth-floor apartment. Today, I pulled a corner of the carpet back to...

    Unsafe Stand?

    Hi all! Purchased a used stand on craigslist. Know very little about its history (even less about carpentry) and I'm wondering if it's safe to carry a glass 55 gallon tank. The stand seems to be an odd mixture of over- and under-engineering. I'll put pictures in the first reply. I'm...

    73 gallon Vietnamese hillstream tank build

    Just a heads up it's a long post. You have been warned. It's been a while since I last posted on here or even got on at all let alone started a new fish tank. Been about 1 1/2 years since I last posted and in that time I had my 220 gallon reef tank which was a great success but ultimately I made...

    240g tank with sump and stand

    I have a glass 240-gallon aquarium with sump that is running as a freshwater setup complete with extra high capacity return pump, lights, heater, etc. You can use the freshwater setup or drain it and start your own saltwater setup. To build this system would cost at least $5,000. Includes: 240...

    Help Reinforcing 10 Gallon Tank Stand?

    I just got a new table to hold my fish tank. It wasn't made for a fish tank so I'm paranoid that it is going to fail. I've had it on there for about a week and I'm convinced the left side is bowing out. For peace of mind, I'd like to reinforce it. My idea was to put a single 2x2 at the back...

    Setup Of A 120 Tank

    I have a straight forward question for a large tank that I haven't used for a few years.  The tank has a sturdy fiberboard stand that came with the aquarium when I purchased the tank.  The tank itself is 6 feet long and is all glass.  When it was installed several years ago the aquarium folks...

    Diy Aquarium & Vivarium Stand

    Ok so I went away from the ideas of a complicated corner design with a diagonally-shaped aquarium tank, I "suppose" these "were" out of my price range. (I was quoted around £500+ for the fish tank only!) Instead, I took a different approach - Dual stands! Just for those unaware, dual...
