Stand Recommendations

I have a 29 gallon aquarium that has been in 3 different spots in the house. In all cases it was placed on a desk or table not made specifically for aquariums. I can never get the darn thing level, and I'm ready for a nice solid stand. What brands are good, and what are crap?

I'm at work as we speak...and every other day, unless I'm in class. I have more money than time.

Trust me, I would LOVE to spend a free day building my own.

I dont know if there are any specific brands that are better. Just go to your LFS ot petsmart or petco and get one rated for a 29 gallon.

I bought the cheapo petco one..... was on sale when they were doing that $1/gallon thing a while ago so i said what the hay.

granted its not the best, but its a simple open design (can hold 2 tanks one on top one on bottom) but i use to bottom to house all my food, filter and such. stable and doesn't chip or scratch easily
