I've posted a few times here in the past trying to resolve some planning issues around the DIY
tank stand I'm working on. I recently purchased an AGA 72 Gallon Bow Front tank, and like many here, cannot see paying the outrageous prices the LFS
's charge for a basic tank stand.
Nonetheless, I'm refining my plans, trying to at least, and would LOVE to hear from anyone who has successfully built a DIY
stand for a comparable bow front tank. 46, 72 or 90. The same concepts should apply.
I'm really curious to see what/how you did things to support the bow, and how well they are working out. Especially anything that looked good on paper, but didn't work in reality.
And a side note - any recommendations for testing stability? This will be a FW
tank, estimated at 800-900 lbs, but I don't exactly have that much weight in something to test on top of this thing.
