    Just picked up a IM40 locally and the stand i planned originally for it is a bit too short width wise.

    Does anyone here build stands? tank dimensions are 24x20 .

    willing to buy a stand that can accommodate the tank, or pay for it to be built.


    thanks!

    I can build you one but it's not cheap. It's most economic if you can find one that's already built that can fit your needs.

    I have a steel welded stand that I believe is 24x24 and can probably hold a car. It's nice, but taking up room in the garage. PM me if interested.
    Located SF.

    Maybe a elaborate staircase with a built in tank?

    I've actually been surprised that I've never come across a customer that's even had a tank in their house. I'd love to do a project that integrates the tank with the staircase.

    I've only made my stand that's in my build thread and @Vhuang168's stand for his 190 gallon tank. He just wanted a quick paint grade one since it was going to be in his garage. Mine is more furniture grade.

    Stand was alredy built, I added height and changed the mdf top and bottom pieces plus the bottom 2x's reinforcement... and oh yes, changed the color to black.
    I've built a few, for @bee505, @melly mel and few others. I think Flagg37 can build you a beautiful stand. I'm a DIY'er sometimes, not an experienced woodworker but have projects that have not been finished, one of them a frag tank stand http://www.bareefers.org/forum/threads/got-bit-by-the-bug-sort-of.18843/ notice started in January, 2016!? I need to attach the doors still then onto working on adding an external overflow box so we are talking 2019 for that little project...
    But as you read, I alredy got bit by the bug...
