55 gallon tank

Got my new 55 gallon yesterday, any suggestions on how to build the stand? I'll pass them on to my boyfriend as I am in a lot of pain and he will have to build it for me. Thanks!

How about these?
My 29 gallon stand-

My dads 110 gallon stand-
We built both of them. Took some time, but will look a lot nicer.

I like those. I'm thinking about drawing up a rustic design with some pallets and stain it a dark color

That would work. The one flint pointed out is great, if you are on a budget and it isnt in a high traffic area. Cuz it isnt the best looking stand IMO.

I mean for now until we can get an actual stand built we may end up doing that. I can't build anything right now, we are waiting on some of my medical tests to come back. I'm in too much pain to build anything

It can be painted to look much nicer and you can eventually just enclose it with wood to make it look nicer.
