Well got the stand frame built, don't have the top of the frame cut out yet, I'll get that done today. Once I get the stand built I'm going to carry it to a friend that owns a cabinet shop and get him to sheet it and stain it just like the rest of my stuff. I'll get some picutres posted of the tank, old stand and new stand frame today.

If you look at picture 1 you will see that picture 2 is built alot better. However, I am going to get it covered with 3/4 oak plywood, in addition I am going to have them cut a couple of braces (I ain't qualified to make those kind of cuts, ).

I weigh about 300 lbs and I got on top of the new stand and jumped up and down, I don't think it's going anywhere.

Why would it have the brace if it wasn't meant to be filled with water?

My thoughts exactly. The tag says it was built in 1999. So it's not that old. Very heavy glass also.
