I put a post on a plant tank forum to see what they have to say.

Thanks for all your help.

Well, from what I have read, the height of the tank doesn't really change the lighting unless it is more than 24" high, so you probably don't need to worry about height when it comes to lighting.

So, I just found this place and am enjoying the diy section. I recently built a stand for a 30tall and now am contemplating a stand for a 125 that was just given to me.

Here's mine:

The doors are in the garage and need to be shaved down just a bit, so they'll go on soon. I built it low so my 1 and 2 year olds can watch the fish and the ten next to it is now in the crawl space forgotten.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could get some specs on your stand? Wood species, construction techniques, etc.

I'm considering poplar stained to mimic walnut with 1x3 I beams resting on 4 boxes front and back. Most of the production stand seem to have rabbetted 1x6s resting on and holding up 2x4s. Is that what you used?

Other suggestions are helpful.
