I just purchased a 42 gallon aquarium, and now I would like to build a stand for it. I'm not really crazy about the stands at my LFS
. I found the GARF website. I typed in the dimensions of the stand I would like to build. When the instruction screen popped up, it said that I should fasten the 2X4's for the frame together using wood screws.
My problem is, the many other articles that I've read before I found the GARF website said not to use nails, or screws to fasten the frame together, bacause of warpage over time, which would cause the nails, or screws to loosen, and cause the holes to enlongate.
Does anyone know if this is true?
If it is true, does anyone know where I could get some DIY
plans to build my own stand?
Thank you very much for your time.
