DIY Tank Stand Stack?
So my sister is moving back home. She's bringing her 20gal tank home, complete with god ugly mollies. (don't like mollies myself)
Anyways, being the nice, older brother, I was thinking of fashioning some sort of tank stand that would fit over my 20gal tank and attach to my stand.
I was thinking of making it entirely of 1/4" metal, and inlaying some nice pine to make it look nice.
The problem? I'm no structural engineer, so I was wondering what would be the best way of transferring the entire weight of the 20gal tank (1 gallon of water weighs approx. 10 lbs. so- 200 lbs?) to both a combination of the floor and the stand?
