Not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but...

Anybody out there have some links to photos of really different aquarium cabinets? I am looking for beautiful, striking, creative looking cabinets. Longggggg term plans/ideas hopefully. :wink:

I've been working with local kitchen cabinet makers to create this stand,

I am looking to buy a 32" stand for a 20 gallon aquarium tank. I am looking for a laminate or painted style tank (Dark Grey), similar to the following picture.

This is a picture of the setup that I am trying to reproduce (larger tanks shown),

I've never seen these tanks in person, so maybe they don't have a laminate finish. Whatever you recommend that would look nice and similar to the picture (maybe a dark gray paint finish, or laminate "matte" finish?). This is a picture of the 20 gallon stand from the front. This is the color and design I am looking for. I can draw up a CAD drawing, to be a little more specific.

I want to get the stand to be flush with the tank (24"x13"). Could you do a similar custom tank, or give me suggestions on cabinet makers that could.

Thanks,
Greg

Unknown,
I'd love to see your final design/results. My long term goals are to get a 50 breeder and design a really classy looking cabinet for it. So I am looking for ideas for whenever that comes to fruition.

jJust remember guys that often the plastic lip is larger. My 15 gallon is actually 24 1/4" by 12 1/2". So remember that if you want the cabinet flush:)

Also, I am a professional furniture and cabinet maker. ALso design some furniture. Fell free to ask me questions anytime:)

In fact, I am going to start a thread just for this. IT will be in the DIY section:)
