I just picked up an All-Glasss pine stand in Black. It's 48x18, to fit my 75G. In this stand I plan to have my sump, and I am concerned about water drips and possible small spills and thier effect on the wood of the stand. I like the stand, and I want it to last.
All-Glass says: "Stain Resistant Finish: Each All-Glass stand comes with a durable finish that is highly resistant to water. This prevents water stains and makes your stand easier to keep clean beautiful for years."
However I would like to some how seal the inside of the stand. Maybe on the bottom and a few inches up each side. I was thinking, maybe something thin and waterproof, black of course, maybe something like the stuff you put on counter-tops. I have no idea what it is called or anything, or how to work with it, or even if this is a good idea.
Shy of that I was thinking I could get a very thin custom acrylic box made that would fit the internal dimentions of the stand, just a few inches high but hopefully cheap enough to make it worth my while. This way I could leave my nets ect in there to dry and not have to worry about wrecking the stand.
