Haha that's always good. If you go the conduit route then you can drill the holes into the stand or strap them to the back for a secure stable hold. I would make the conduit 1' down the back so its more stable. One clamp at the top and one where the bottom is

I was thinking earlier today that instead of a 30 gallon tank costing roughly 300 dollars I could use the 20 gallon and 10 gallon tank I have lying around and make a 20 gallon display with 10 gallon sump. Just brainstorming and wanted to run it by you guys first to see what you think. The stand I built has some extra space in the backside of the top if I use the 20 so my plan is to make a adjoining canopy covering the empty space in the back and coming up over the aquarium using 2x4's and covering it with birchwood and staining it the same color. What do you think?
