New Stand

Ok i recently built a new canopy for my 65 gallon and now i am going to build a new stand to match it. Now I really need to know is about how tall should the stand be? What is the tallest you should go. The Stand frame is goingt o bew made out of angle iron welded togehter. I know that sounds heavy but that is how the guy that is helping me wants to do it. Of course you wont be able to see the steel when it is done. THe dimensions of the tank are 36x18x24. THanks

Just measured mine. Its 32" high. Although my tank is 24" deep, perhaps you may want to go abit higher since yours is 18" deep.

mine is 29 inches high the tank is also 2 foot I picked that height because if you sit on a couch and looked at a comfortable height on the wall it was 35 inches so I took off 6 and built from there.
