My local fish store charges about 280 for their cheapest 55g stand. I saw one for 500. It had a canopy on the floor model, so I thought for sure it was for both. Nope. Canopy sold separately. I decided at that point I was definitely not getting my stand there.

Thanks for the idea though!

I would consider one hob AC70. One small internal filter with air tube type. That's my setup. We do travel. AC NEEDS PRIME when power out for 1 min. Internal filter fix the issue. I bought mine from eBay $14.00 80gph. They have bigger one. With air tube. I won't worry about power issue .

I have never had to prime any of my AC filters as long as the water level is with in 1" of the output. unless i do a water change but then all HOB's need to be filled back up.

Great advice! Thank you.

I think we finally decided on a stand. Hopefully we will start setting it up on Tuesday after work.

Thanks for the help everyone! I'll be sure to post a pic of the new tank when we get it up and running. If I can get a decent pic of Iso in his little 10g now, I'll post that too.

Hopefully this works. I've never posted a pic on this website.

Took me a week to build mine for under 25 dollars. It has a steel support stand hidden behind the wood. I am a welder so thats how I got the medal stand I built myself. Its for a 75 gallon tank. I drilled peices of wood on to the medal stand to make it look better then spray painted it black. I still have to drill the doors on though.
