Currently taking my sketches of my stand and making them into fully dimensioned cad files. I can share the actual cad files with you if you want too. Then if you like design but want to alter dimensions and such and have access to autocad (::cough free with student email: and Autodesk inventor you can see and edit them to whatever length your tank is

I like to have storage under the stand. We live in a world of the internet. All of the tank stats can be beamed to your browser saving space under the tank

2x4s and plywood. You can build an incredible stand for like 50 or 60 bucks. 2x4 frame, 1/2" sanded plywood cased. If you're handy in the wood shop you can do it affordably

Some people hate him. IDC. But this dude is indirectly responsible for me doing my lab. I got inspired to do a project from his videos I watch at work. Started with deciding to out an internal sump in my tank. Then I decided to scape it and make a background. Ended up going to a seminar at our LFS sponsorsed by Dennerle. Realized I already had the capital equipment at home and could combine something I love (planted tanks) with what I spent almost a hundred grand to study (plant biotech). Make my own company and get out of semiconductors and doing something I was passionate about.


He's got some great guides.

2x4 8ft is like $4 each. Cabinet grade finished plywood ranges 25 to 50 for half inch thick 4'x8' sheet. Box of heavy screws maybe ten bucks. Stain of your choice. Then customise it till your heart's content
