im thinking to do a stand to hold 4 10 gallons

or maybe 3 10's and 1 5?. im thinking of making a shelf and a little further back and another shelf. and a normal cabinet under. i might use my 5 gallon right now as a quarentine or maybe like a sump or something? like have all 4 tanks filtering into the 5 gallon?

only problem is i was making a rabbit fence for my rabbits out of like those wooden poles and wiring. i put the nail 1/2 way in and i hit it sideways to hold the wiring. my mom thought i couldnt put the nail through so she wont let me buy the wood. i think theres a different reason though

I built a stand to hold my 20gal long on top and two tens on the bottom out of 2x4's and some plywood.
Looks kinda like a small work bench. If I had a new digital cam I'd post a pic...LOL. Good luck getting the wood.

I think I would go with screws on it as 4 tens dont really weigh enough to need bolts IMO.

The one I made I used nails and screws just to be safe. I like to over do things..lol
Better safe then sorry...

I painted mine with two coats of black oil base paint to protect it from any water spills.

Not a bad idea krap101. I use one of the 48" shop lights on my 55gal and it workes great.

so... on 2 tanks and 1 48" 40 watt light.. will both my tanks be getting >20 watts or 40 watts each? because there'll be a space inbetween them and the lights split amongst them
