Funny you say that. Mine is only a little over 2 feet off the floor. I'm sitting on the floor looking at it cause I added some new inhabitants. Check out my thread if you want. My biocube journey.

My 55 is on a custom stand that the previous owner built. It is a nice stand...just short and has no purpose other than housing equipment. I wish I could have got my sump in there.

Basically, build the stand yourself. It will then fit the needs for your system, rather than someone else's.

Very true. Then I can stain it to match the coffee table. The wife probably won't go for the black factory one. Then I guess it's settled. I'll build one.

Very good advice but make sure you keep the rock wet as you dont want the nitrifying bacteria on it to die off or you will have to cycle over again.

thats the best way you can do it im building my own stand ill prob take pictures and post it, so far its the best thing i did instead of buying 1 just for the reason you can make it to your own exact measurements as big, as little or anyway you want it
