LOL. If I crawl underneath to look! I just want the sturdiest and best option. This build might be my last.

Still trying to sell off the 55g too. I figured it would go quick too. Am really disappointed that it hasnt sold yet.

I'm even selling it in pieces now, tank stand and fluval, then you can add on the lights or add on the skimmer. I figured a lower price point would be a good idea but so far nothing but scams and lots of "is it still available" then not another word. lol

Same deal with my 4g pico, I have it listed on CL as well and get an email a day at least about it and no on ever shows up. lol

Yea I would go with the taller one then as well. Like u said u won't grow out of it anytime soon. And as far as getting one made and unfinished. U could sways just stain it and not paint. I just think the natural wood looks so nice with an aquarium.

Everything in my living room dining room is black. LOL I've painted all the stands or got them all in black. We kinda have the "modern" look in outr decor so black would be a must. We also have a light pine pergo flooring so the black really works well with it.

I should really give that guy a call and see how much HE charges for painting. That fine point may be the deciding factor of whether I buy one prebuilt or have it made.

I guess I'm in no rush now for the stand as the 55g is still occupying the spot for the 90g. lol But who knows that 55g could go tomorrow. here's hoping. I;m getting itchy on the 90g I wanna start NOW. lol

Most of the time, I can fire up the table saw and miter saw and build something easier than putting together one bought from the store. LOL Of course, it frustrates the dickens out of my wife. Any time she wants to buy something I say "Hey, I can build that". LOL

i could only wish my b/f were that way. lol he's a mason so if it's concrete he can build it but when it comes to carpentry, well, it just doesn't. LOL

I found out where this carpenter is but I think it might be a two hour drive, which would kinda suck and negate the benefit of having him make it. :-(
