Need some help with my stand please...
My 30 long sump will not fit any which way through the doors or opening on the back, so I will need to modify this a bit and lower the sump in from the top. Looks like I will need to remove this middle brace pictured here:
Should I just find a way to remove the staples, and then just reuse this piece by screwing it in? (it's a pine stand btw) Or... Should I cut a 2x4 and fit it into place?
Also, this is a stand that the tank essentially rests
on the outside lip of the top. Is there something that I should do to structurally increase the integrity, like laying down a piece of plywood over the top, and then rest the tank on that? Or are these stands built with the right finesse?
