Help with DIY brick stand
Hey so i'm not a fan of the flimsy wooden (and costly) stands in my local stores, so I decided to make one. I'd just like confirmation on whether it's a good idea. It's a 55gallon tank, dimensions L 12.75 W 48.25 H 20.19.
The plan is to use twelve 8x8x16 concrete bricks with holes vertical in three stacks of four on either end and in the middle of the tank. Below the tank will be a piece of plywood the exact dimensions of the tank (should I put a piece of fabric under the glass?) and another piece of plywood at the base to spread the weight on the floor.
It may be a silly question but Id like to avoid accidents at all costs. The weight of the full tank will be fully accommodated by the wood and bricks right? Im very open to suggestions on what to change or any tips from anyone who has done something like this already.
Fish. That is all.
