How big of a tank you think you can go with cinder blocks? I found a killer deal on CL on a tank but no stand.

Probably as big as your floor can support the weight. They use cinder blocks in buildings after all.

Currently, I have my 55 gallon on a long dresser that I picked up for 10 bucks at a second hand store. put a couple 2x4's in for support. not bad. less than 20 dollars invested right now. I plan on building a nice stand come spring time. My 29 is on an entertainment stand that I bought at walmart on clearance for 30 bucks. It looks absolutely beautiful.
