Ideal timbre

Hello folks. I'm about to take delivery of my first tank after a 10 year forced break.
The tank i'm getting is a 6 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft baby. I've looked around for a suitable aesthetically pleasing stand but there is just nothing out here that tickles my fancy. So my plan is to put up a bespoke tank.
So my question is, a weight to strength of timer question. What would be the most suitable timber for me to get in to knock uo this giant.? My tank will be sat underneath a window in my lounge room with a cill of 3 foot from floor level. Meaning the stand would be about a foot high from the floor. I would think the lower the stand the stronger it would be.
Any suggestions on this would be gratefully received. When i eventually buy my wood, i will post a step by step photo journal of my behemoth taking shape.
Many thanks in advance folks.
