Aquarium furniture
So I had an idea the other day. My Mom doesn't like the look of the fireplace in the house and wants to cover it up. So i suggested getting a tank to get it. I found a few tanks but she doesn't want a big tank...:roll: So I need a tank+stand that is at least 38 inches(preferably more but hard) Long and that n total is at least 29 inches tall but not over 45 in(if possible) the stand just has to cover the minimum requirements and a tank of any size than can go on it that will be under the max( It would be awhile but it is a hope)

For one, pls send you mom my hellos and she can gladly msg me, but a larger tank is MUCH easier to maintain / keep then a smaller tank.
That said from the sounds, I'd prop do a small custom fit stand for all this.
For the named size there, I'd look into 20-25g tanks, maybe a nice 25g bowfront?

i was looking on the petsmart site and the 20-25 gallon tank sizes were under 38 inches and so were the stands but i am starting to think that the measurements are wrong. I'll keep looking

I'd be curious to see a picture of the fireplace.

38 inches is a tricky size. There are a lot of tanks that are 36 inches wide but the next width up is going to be 48 inches. So I guess the next question to ask your mom is whether she'd rather have a tank that doesn't quite cover the fireplace or one that's a little bit bigger.

she doesn't want to get a big one so i guess she is kind f giving up on the idea( It wouldn't be for awhile anyways because of careful spending) I myself want to get a 10 gallon and get 2 puffers BUT i would need a stand to put somewhere in my room(might have to move my po-ang chair somewhere else). Ideas on tank+stand???
