I was also considering that. If I do a 5" my fishes will only have 12" of vorticella swim room. 3" , will that be enough for dab action. Where did u come up with 4" = algae?

Read it when I first started my SW tank. Forget where I saw it. It was on several different sites. But, being on AA, someone may have a different opinion.

i need a stand for my tank. i like the stand i got from petco but its not sump friendly. while at work i thought why not make one. one that can support my 40b and a 40b sump. metal stock should run about $70. and if i go this route it will give me something to do.

why metal and not wood? because i can cut and weld. and i have 0 wood working tools.

this is my cut list, 4x36" those will be my legs to be welded on the outside of the structure. 4x36.5" and 4x14.5" these will be the frames for the tanks to set on.

material will be 2" 11 gage square tube.
