I'm looking at it now. The tank is supported on both ends and a center strip that goes through the middle. Thats it.

So you can fit a matchbook cover, piece of card or some such between the full tank & the stand for about 2 1/2 feet in 4 places? Unless they've recently integrated some sort of additional support into the tank itself for the longer length this goes against the usual techniques of building stands, and is just one more reason that I build my own.

Its impossible to find anyone with any true experience with these stands.
I would be surprised if a company specializing in tanks and stands wouldn't know what they are doing.

The weight is held on the corners and dead center.

It may well hold a tank in that manner, hopefully I'll be finding out tomorrow. If in the future someone tosses an All-Glass or Perfecto on that stand there will be a problem. As stated, one more reason I build my own, real stupid design if it is set up that way, less support is better? Still wondering if you can fit anything like a postcard or some such between the filled tank & stand for the unsupported areas you seem to be seeing.


I've encountered some rigged gear in fishrooms, but nothing like that from a company who would be liable for what seems like a really poor design.

Yes I can fit an envelope in the 2.75' spaces.
