Wow...that's a great deal! Be sure to check the seals on the tank. Sitting outside for that long it may need to be resealed.

I would look for a proper stand on Cragslist. 80 gallons is a pretty good sized tank and once filled will weigh close to 1000 lbs so you want something that was built specifically for an aquarium.

What are the dimensions of the tank?

Yeah, something like craigslist is probably your best bet. Since you live in AU, I would have a lot of difficulty pointing you towards a good wood to use that wouldn't cost you a fortune to get imported.

I know i'm really psyched! I'm making my own stand now out of stuctural pine for the frame, and MDF for the shell. BTW its going to be a heavily planted aquarium, so when I do get it up and running, i'll most definitely post pics.

I'm so envious of you, possessing the talent & skill of being able to build your own stand. I can't even build a simple bird house. Looking forward to the photos!!

Well... I don't take all the credit for being able to make the stand, although with enginerering and woodwork under my belt from grades 9-12, I should be able to lol. School is good for some things I guess lol... Winnydapoo, one of our newest members gets most of the credit for helping me design the stand, and all the little details is thanks to them.

I would have absolutely taken woodwork in high school but back when I was in high school (about a century ago) "girls" weren't "allowed" to. I'm really looking forward to seeing your completed project!
