Very nice job and I ain't just being nice. The first photo made tank look awfully tall while setting on the stand, but last photo makes it look more manageable with regards to cleaning,vaccuming etc.Good job!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

get out you're just saying this to be nice, or you're not really a carpenter or something

Look at the picture in detail, see how my walls are yellow and the back of the stand is white? There's 3/4- 1/2" backboard on it (painted white) so it can't go side-side and it is nailed to the sides, top, bottom and center shelves (plenty nails lol). I'd hope its stable enough this way (seems like it so far).

Once the plants arrive & are in, I'll take new pictures strait on (not at angle) so no one will be tricked. Thou honestly the tank itself when I first got it looked 'small' for a 55g and somewhat outta proportion to me, but now with its new hood, looks MUCH better to my eyes

Yes i am a carpenter. Have ben for 12 years. Your stand looks very nice. and yes i read the post that said you had 3/4 backboard on there. A 1/4 iinch would have done the trick tho. Again it looks realy nice.

Wow now I really feel proud of myself to have a professional person say that about my stand dang....
Well I seen these thin back boards you're talking bout too at the store, but I figured I rather use ticker wood on everything then to thin stuff all around for the cabinet (rather to big boards and it withstand a earthquake then thin stuff and it breaks under the tank right!?).
And really like I said, I never used saw's or routers etc before in my LIFE and I have much LESS idea how thick boards would have been structurally sufficient

Biggest reason I like it apart from its looks, it matches the rest of my office (all natural untreated wood shelves and desk).

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
