Wrought iron stand

Yeah.. its kinda cheap, but seriously what do you guys think. SM has got me thinkin about my stand, but i really am on a tight budget as i am saving up for LR.

It seems to have good reviews and all, so what you peoples think?

If you have access to tools/the room to work I would suggest just building yourself a stand. Or just reinforcing your current stand.

yeah see, that was also another option i was thinking of. My stand right now is solid oak wood and is pretty **** sturdy. (already held my tank filled with lots of decor in it perfectly) So i was thinking maybe i should just add some more reinforcement to it. And actually, i think thats what i'll do. Thank you razorback.
