Question DIY Aquarium Stand Questions

So tomorrow my step dad and I are going to make a 26in tall stand for my 29 gallon tank. Its going to be simple nothing fancy. I was going to put pictures up about how we build it but I wasn't sure if anyone was interested in seeing it.

So is there anyone interested?

PS: the reason we are making it short is cause we are a short family (Im only 5 foot tall) so it will make it easier for me to clean and work with.

6 ivory apple snails | Jungel Vals
5 Lamp eye tetras | Cryptocoryne Wendys
2 silver hatchet | Anubias
2 Albino bristle nose plecos | Water Sprite
2 Kribensis cichlid | Water Onion
1 Orange Koi Angelfish Runt | Amazon Swords

I'd be interested. DIY projects add another nice element to the hobby, in my opinion.

29 gallon tank = 242.15 Lbs not counting substrate dont knwo if you knew or not

anyways i lvoe diy projects, just be sure the surface where the tank is sitting is level saw a guy on here that had a diy stand that wasnt level and he cracked his aquarium.
