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.

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

Weight of 1 US Gallon of water = approx. 8.35 lb
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.
