How do you know if your stand will support the weight?
Hi all, I'm building a 125 gallon reef setup and have it on a stand with water about 100 lbs of sand and about 130 lbs of rock. I'm a little concerned about my stand because the wood seems dry and when you touch certain areas it cracks like a potato chip; almost make me wonder if termites got to it at one point.
Any thoughts or recommendations as to what I should do? I'm thinking of maybe building a stand; if I go that route you know any good guides to know what type of wood to use what stain is good etc?
