Hi Everyone!!!

I accidentally happened on this site yesterday, and am so happy to find this forum!!! I had a ten-gallon tank 20 years ago but gave up the hobby after moving out of state. Now that I am retired, I am returning to my love of aquariums. I have been given a 40-gal tank that is a very odd shape. It is a corner tank but is five-sided rather than three-sided. I don't know where to begin to find an appropriate stand or hood. This site seems wonderful for all things aquatic-related. I hope someone can point me in the right direction as I begin my setup process!!

The tank from the corner (back) end to the front is 25" across. At its longest point side-to-side is 23 1/4". Two of the five sides are 22 1/4", and the remaining three sides are 13" each. It is 25" deep. Wish I could draw it for you.

Welcome. There are some good posts on tank cycling and aquascaping. Start simple, get compliacted.
