Wow.. I'll keep most of my comments to myself as I'm sure they've been said already. I just see a lot of irony in that first post.

If you can't upgrade the tank, take the fish back. It's called being responsible. I didn't read the entire thread so maybe your working on an upgrade, in that case keep them.

Yeah I over engineered my stand but 2x4s are cheap so I think the stand weighs almost 100lbs plus glass substrate and water the final weight has to be near 800lbs

I see that and I assume you have $$$. Or planned it as an expense.

I would build my own, too. This way you can make it exactly as you want, its a good idea!

If you are writing to me that is what I did, you must not have had time to read my recent posts.

If you read their post you would see they said they didn't read the whole thread.

You can do whatever you like and whatever you think looks the best in your house, it's just super important for it to be able to hold hundreds of pounds. You don't wanna 55 gallons of water flooding your living room lol.
Maybe what you said was true, howvever, if I'm that serious about something I put into it all of my time, effort, money, whatever it takes. I would not go to the trouble of having a huge tank with or without a stand even, if I was not planning on having it for years. I would do it this way if I was sure I could maintain fish keeping for a long time. In my case, I might be moving in the next several years so I would not have something real elaborate, but something that fits in my house and is easier to transport if I do move.
