Agreed. That was my first thought when I looked at the rendering.Mcdaphnia said:The trouble with a kick plate on an aquarium stand, is that it makes the tank less stable. If a small child should try to climb the front to look in, the whole tank could fall over on them with disastrous results.
Put a 2 by 6 horizontally on the wall behind the stand near the top and lag bolt it into several studs. Then lag or carriage bolt the top of the stand into the 2 by 6. When you move the tank some day, the holes from the lag bolts will be as easy to fix as nails from picture frames. They will take a little more spackle is all.a_c_arnold said:Yeah I had your concerns at first, the toe kick takes away some stability, but there are three feet that are kind of hard to see in the rendering. The stand will likely be on carpet, so I will likely put an achor strap into a stud just to be safe.
