I got rid of my regular stands long ago.Steel or 2 by 4 stands are so much sturdier than what you will generally find for sale and when you build it yourself it is custom. Spend some time on planning and save yourself some money.I have kids so I need these to be sturdy especially when they are stacked.

I would love to see a thread on another stack. And I don't think I deserve credit for anything...except maybe some inspirational kindling.Let me know if you want any pointers,if it is going to be a really big stack you might want to attach it to your wall via the studs.Be sure its level first,you know the drill.

I would definitely love it there, and have a field day with my camera too, I think! I want to know more about your gliders, but that's so off-topic T_T (I <3 sugar gliders!)

THREE CHEERS for inspirational kindling!!!

Very excited to see a new tank stand project spawned here! *dances*






Easy, we have a DIY area over on the freshy side that would be the perfect spot for you to document your project - please drop a link in here when you get going, so we can all find your thread *ish excited*
. . . and remember - MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE!!! *giggles*

Well chesh I have so many buckets its crazy, I got at least 6 upstairs,3 or 4 on the front porch,maybe 6 at the back door and over 10 in the back of my house,then there are many scattered around out side of my house with things waiting for my attention...Don't worry they are not animals but rocks and gravel.

The picture is of my oldest who takes all the mad pictures,I take some but they are usually sub par and lack clarity,it seems once again my 15 year old can out do me on some of the technical aspects.He also give me a hand with some of the little things when I need that extra assistance.Good kid.

And the update on the tank is I am having one MAJOR algae bloom due to a late cycle. It happens in established reef tanks especially when you have sand for a substrate as all the micro fauna and microverts have to die and repopulate resulting in quite the nutrient spike and then time for the bacteria to level out again. In the mean while my coral is hating me and I hope can hold on for a little while longer.There are several types of nuisance algae that are growing and competing for space,you can see all the oxygen bubbles forming form the mass photosynthesis.
