It took me 6 months to convince my mom I should have a 10 gallon and then another 6 to convince her I should have a 36 lol. And she didnt even have to buy them. The looks I get when I start talking about heaters, substrate, and filters is hysterical. I'm pretty sure I'm adopted

My mom said 'no' when I talked about getting another tank(10g). We were on our way to petsmart to get some more plants and stopped at a garage sale, our hobby in the warm months. I seen a tank with hood and filter sitting on the rock wall. I did a quick appraisal in my head and went back to the car, I didn't say a word to her because I was sure she would've said no. She comes back the car and says 'go give them $10 for the tank on the wall.' SCORE!!

They'll special order stuff for you. Might take a week or 2 to get it. They special ordered my corner tank/stand for me.

My wife got me a pretty good stand from Petsmart, that was like 150 I think. I had to put it together, but it works well.

If you had some very basic carpentry skills, a few basic tools, and the time, you can make a stand for super cheap that 5X better than anything at the store.

+1 to this. I don't care for/trust most of the stands sold for tanks. The majority of them use cheap particle board and the tops aren't water resistant and have you seen the prices for just the stand!?! I prefer a low(a bit taller than waist high), solid wood, desk or dresser. Here is what I have my 29 on. Plenty of storage and I have a black foam-ish mat under the tank itself.
