DIY stand plans?

Anyone have solid plans for a 55G tank? I need it to be able to house a wet/dry filter underneath.

Here's the plans I used for the framing.

Reef Central Online Community - DIY Stands Template and Calculator

Then I just covered it with 1/4 plywood.


I know a few others on this forum used the same plan.
It's simple but effective.

Thanks!

xD I'd just rather build one than buy a 150 dollar one at the store.

Yeah much cheaper.
And better.

I used oak for the doors, trim, and plywood so it cost me around $200, but if you want to paint yours.. Probably could build it for 75 or less.

Don't forget pics.. !

75 sounds much better. Plus if I build it i know it won't collapse .

I shall post pics when I start getting the materials.
