I want to build my own stand for my 50 gallon tank. Here is my questions:
1a) Should i build the base out of 2 x 4's and then cover it with 1/4" oak panels?
1b) Or should i make it out of 3/4" oak veneer?
1c) Would both work? is one better than the other?
2) For the top of the stand I am planing on using Plywood, would 3/4" plywood be enough to support the weight? or should i maybe user 2 3/4" sheets?
3) Any recommendations on Retrofits for a canopy? i want to add lights, 2WPG but dont want to break the bank either
Thanks in advance AA!! I appricate all your help! :p
