Postby hitme455 » Mon Jun 30, 2008 3:16 pm

should i buy a custum made fish tank stand or the one that comes with a fish tank?the ones that come with the tank look like the tank would break with only three areas of the botoum of the tank being suported.there is one piece of wood about 2 inches wide on each side and in the center to the left on the ank i want to buy. is it as it looks flimsy. or is it able to hold a tank up full of water. they come with a 20 year waranty.should i buy the stand with it , get a custom made stand, or make one my self?

Well i thought the same thing when i recieveded my tank. It was sittin on one of those flimsey lil cheap stand. All made out of 1x4's. It held it but wasn't sturdy, so i built my own out of 2x4's double plating everything. Plus if you build your own and stain it yourself, it looks 10x better(considering you have and idea on what your doin)
