personally i wouldnt buy a big tank with out stand since i wouldnt build one or want to buy one.

anything over 50 gallons can be found here for $1 a gallon with stand for the most part or some times less.

Why even waste your time buying a stand.. If you make a stand yourself, out of 2x4's or 2x6's it can hold over 1000lbs. Unless you know the stand your getting is going to hold the amount you need, i wouldnt risk it. I was going to buy a stand and then i noticed that by paying 20$ for 8 pieces of 2x4 i can build a nice stand that is WAY stronger than any fancy stand out there. Plus, for 10-15$ extra you can put doors on it.. rofl. But then again, some people will pay for anything these days. Just seems to make more sense to go with the stronger, cheaper choice. Also, a single vertical 2x4 can hold up to 1750lbs when braced. Ill take that support over a gaudy stand any day. Not to mention theres plans all over the internet to build a stand out of 2x4's with a budget of 20$

I agree about the 2x4's. The only thing is that this one is going in my living room and I'd like the nice piece of furniture with the storage.

Also, it comes with the aquarium, and he won't split up the pieces.

Thanks for all the comments.

Oh, well if your trying to make a statement with the pieace of furniture then by all means buy the nice piece of wood that has a lacquer finish and all. If i was setting it up in a living room or kitchen then i would definitely want it to either match or look nice with the rest of the room. I just have a tank in my room and built a stand out of 2x4's because of the strict budget. But there isnt a doubt in my mind that when i get my own place and i setup another aquarum i will be buying a nice piece of furniture for it as well.

Glad the comments gave you some ideas and some advice!! Have a good time with your tank and stand!
