PostSubject: Mulit fish tank stand   Thu Jul 28, 2011 2:23 pm

this stand I made for a 90g on top and 2 29g tanks below. The bottom tanks are on 200lb pull out drawers for easy cleaning and W/C's they pull out 60% of the tank top.






still not done painting but ya get the idea of it... My doggies love to lay in front of it and watch the fish too Smile

13"deep x 18" tall x 30" across or 33cm x 46cm x 76cm

the 90g on top is 18" x 24" x 48" I can fit a 6' tank on the top as the stand is 74" long by 20" deep 35" tall

I used 13" deep tanks on the bottom so I could keep my canister filter behind it. I also mounted a power strip between the tanks so I always have a drip loop on all my cords.

Awesome job mate, well done!! How long did it take you to make the stand up and how much did it cost you roughly for the bits and pieces?

Good Job Good Job

Hello silvashadow I'm not really sure what it would cost as all the materials I used came from my garage. I'm in the construction trade and always bring home extra materials. but to give a quick est. i would say less than $150 to make this stand. As the main cost would be the hinges and there around $60 or so depending on what size you get.

8- 2"x4"x8'
2- pairs hinges
2- pull handles
1- sheet plywood 4'x8'
1- box 3" sinker nails

I built it in less than 3 hours as having all the right tools makes this project easy. Also 1 hour in prep time drawing it on paper first. I do think I have the plans around the house some where if anyone interested in making one.
