Hello all! I recently bought a 40 gallon aquarium that I intend to set up as a rocky-lake cichlid habitat. I was wondering if anyone had any methods for me to test whether or not a wooden desk I own would withstand the weight. Any ideas??
um, yeah as i'm a carpenter. i would strongly suggest that you don't put that kind of weight upon your desk(unless you feel the need of flooding your office as it all comes down). they are not designed for holding that kind of weight. you can most likely find a stand for a 45g tank fairly cheap.
LOL. Thanks guys... I guess I was asking that question because I was hoping that my assumption (desk breaking and my room flooding like a noah's arc movie) would be disproven. I am not going to risk it (especially seeing that I not only wanted to fill the tank but I wanted to make it a cichlid rocky lake tank).
Anyone got any ideas regarding what type of stand I should get?
