I honestly lost track of what I was spending. Especially after I had to rebuild the top for the 75 gal
that replaced the cracked 55 gal
I will be building a 55 gal
stand next, but open in bottom to hold my 29 gal
. If you aren't in a rush, give me a week or so and I will try and see what it costs, but you should really ask someone on the mainland since everything here in Hawaii is more expensive due to shipping costs and an additional middle man or two.
Note: Had I stuck with the 55 gal
, I would've probably been able to do it for about $100, but no matter what, you are better off building or having a stand built. The ones you can buy like from Petco etc are weeeeeek and if you take a look at a typical stand inside. You will be amazed how it could ever hold up an empty tank let alone a full one.
Just my 2.5 cents
