Building a custom stand
I've got a 72 gallon bowfront tank. The current stand really only holds my sump. There's no room to store supplies or addition equipment under the tank. I'm thinking of building a new stand that would be bigger than the current tank. The tank is 48 in long and I'm thinking the stand will be close to six feet long. Is there anything I should take into account when designing the stand?
Ideally the tank will sit in the center of the stand with about a foot of shelf on each side. Should I put extra framing under the tank itself?
Any suggestions would be welcome.
