DIY stand

Here is the stand I built today for my 2 4 gallon tanks that I built a few weeks ago. Each tank has a light socket above and they will be using DIY filters. One tank will probably be a hospital/quarantine tank. The other is gonna house my sons ADF for now until I get him a bigger tank. Here are pics of the tanks and of the stand with the tanks in it. I gotta get some black spray paint and paint the whole thing.

Def nice work! Have you thought about putting a vanity piece in front to closeoff the openings above the tank?

I hadn't thought of that. That is a great idea I believe I have enough boards left to do that.

Well I finished the stand today. I painted the inside black and left the outside wood colored. I also built doors for the space over each tank ( thanks huma-huma). Here are some not very good pics.
