My high school woods teacher said I could build a tank stand in class. There is just 1 requirement, all wood. I plan on making a 10-20 tank gallon stand for the new nano I am planning. I cant find a plan for a all wood stand anywhere. I would asome if someone had a link or copy of plans. A lot of Kudos for help TIA
*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,
A 20 gal stand. Just use 2X4's for the legs. If your worried about side to side stablity put some vertical cross braces on the back and sides. This way you can leave the front for a door and shelves. Use at least 1/2" plywood for the top and sides. This will make a very heavy and sturdy stand. A 20 gal tank will only be 200-220lbs max. Build the stand to fit the foot print of the tank exactly. This will put all the downward weight on the legs and not the top surface.
