Stand Height

hey ya'll.
I'm at work, with nothing to do, so i'm drawing up a stand for my 4'x18"x18" in 2D and 3D..
Prob is, I need someone who has a tape measure handy to measure the height from the floor, up to the base glass of the aquarium, so i can determine where i want to put the shelf.

I'll be posting the drawing soon, just need this measurement asap.

I will also detail the building of it as i go along, finance permitting of course..
It's a cheap, quick and easy to build stand,(without compromising strength) and will have step-by-step instructions that even the not-so-brightest monkey can follow

Thanx,
Matt

most aquariums (on a manufactored stand) sit between 28inches through 30inches from the floor. when i built mine i choose to go with 30 (instead of the stock stand's height of 28 ) so the tank was closer to eye level you may want do the same, if possible, just don't go past 36inches from tank bottom to floor.
