Need Help finding stand! first aquarium setup in 25 years

I am looking at buying a odd size acrylic that is 60 (L) x 25 1/2 (D) x 30 (H). It doesnt come with stand, top lid or light? Can someone help point me in the right direction where to acquire these things? Also how much money is a stand going to cost? I have found a good deal on the tank at only $500 but am worried about other items costs?

He also has a 48 x 36 (D) x 24 (H) acrylic with stand and canopy for $1k but I think the 36 inch is too wide for my room placement?
What advice for a nooby who just almost bought a 60 gallon set up at petstore for $259 for just tank and stand with hood/lights..
Thanks folks....

more info about this

by the way both come with sump and drilled tank and apparently everything needed. The tank only just needs 2 hoses and the one with stand and canopy comes with proteing skimmer and all filter parts and sump. havent seen in person yet? I dont even know what a salt water needs for setup. I am relying on the seller to help??

Seller measured tank wrong it is 24" deep. Still having hard time finding stands for acrylic 60" x 24" footprint which don't cost $650 to $950 and then want another $400-$800 for shipping and packing.

I would recommend building one too. With an odd shaped tank, it's most definitely the cheapest and you can build it how you want it to be.
