Hello All,

I'm new to the site. Great site, btw! I am getting back into aquariums after a 12 year hiatus.. :oops:

I'm looking at Petsmart locally and think I've decided on a Marineland 75 gal. aquarium. It's the wider 21" profile, so lots of good water surface. I've already ordered the Marineland C-360 per the great reviews on this site and am also going to hand a Marineland Penguin 200 for added filtration.

There's a question in here I promise! LOL. I've been reading on here and have been looking at some local stores, but haven't decided if I want to undertake the task of building my own stand, or I'd just rather buy one and be done with it. The only prefab model that I'm vaguely interested in is a "Rustic 55/75" that Petsmart has. Here's a link:

Let me know your opinions on this stand and about building your own stand for one of these 75 gallon tanks. All help is GREATLY appreciated.

Welcome back to the hobby :thumb:

I'm a big advocate of saving cash with used equipment. Craigslist, at least in my area, always have lots of good used tanks with stands. Have you look there? You can easily save a grand that way if you are looking at a larger tank setup.
