I currently am setting up what i have been told is a 30g show tank (36"L 10"W 16 1/4"D) As my 2nd Reef tank And was wondering since im also breaking down a 60gal Freshwater tank if i toss a pice of 3/4 or 1/2 Plywood on the top of the stand and nail it in place will the stand be strong enough to support the 36" Reff tank even though it does not reach end to end or will there be a middle issue because of it? The Stand in question is made out of 2X4 mostly with 1x1 ect for shelving and such. I have included some basic pics and a short video to give a better idea. Thanks again for any advice/help and hope i posted this into the right area hehe

If you do go with the ply wood I would get some weather proof paint or better yet krylon and coat it once or twice as to prevent saturation of salt water,that will lead to a warped piece of wood wich is no good.

Yeah, I have had good luck with Novus. You can also get super fine sand paper rated for car polishing ,like 2000 grit,but I have yet to try that myself. from my understanding it is not easy to come by either.I would stick with the Novus acrylic kit.
