 Dear  Fellow  aquarists
 
 I  am  going  in  for  a  48"(L)*19"(W)*24"(H)  -  moulded  imported  tank.
 
 The  stand:  48"(L)*19"(W)*27"(H)
 
 Question(s):
 
 1.  I  see  a  lot  of  posts  talking  on  the  importance  of  stands  and  its  structure  to  take  up  that  weight  of  the  tank  +  water  +  deco  etc.  -->  can  someone  tell  me  if  the  stand  provided  with  these  kinds  of  tanks  (the  stand  is  also  imported)  are  sturdy  enough  to  take  up  that  weight?
 
 2.  What  does  one  need  to  look  at  (salient  points)  in  these  stands  of  this  dimensions?  Any  advice  on  inspecting  (supports,  cross  links)  etc?  The  stand  as  i  saw  it  has  3  compartments.
 
 3.  I  haven't  confirmed  my  tank  yet  and  would  go  for  a  final  look  before  taking  a  decision.  Your  advice  would  be  pricless.
 
 The  pic(s)  of  the  tank  from  the  LFS's  website:

 Hi  KK,
 
 If  the  stand  is  provided  along  with  the  tank  then  it  should  have  been  designed  to  take  full  load  of  the  tank.
 
 But  in  my  opinion,  its  better  to  reinforce  the  stand  (if  you  intend  to  buy  readymade  one)  with  those  serrated  galvanised  iron  angles  which  are  readily  available  in  hardware  stores.  Just  the  weight  of  water  in  your  tank  will  be  close  to  400kgs.  Once  you  add  strata  and  such  things  its  definitely  going  to  be  a  substantial  heavy  object.   Its  better  to  be  safe  than  to  be  sorry  as  such  tank  come  real  hard  on  our  pockets.
 
 Also  If  you  are  going  to  use  external  filter  make  sure  you  do  a  thorough  research  before  zeroing  in  on  the  filter  and  then  ensure  that  the  filter  will  be  easily  accommodated  in  the  stand.  Same  applies  for  chiller  or  sump  (whichever  way  you  are  going).  
 
 Last  but  not  least  make  sure  the  place  where  you  are  going  to  place  your  tank  will  take  the  concentrated  load  as  there  is  always  considerable  load  transmitted  through  the  legs  of  the  stand.  (for  e.g.  if  your  tank  weighs  900  kgs  and  your  stand  has  six  legs  then  each  leg  will  be  transmitting  a  load  of   150  kgs  of  the  floor  tiles.
 
 Please  let  me  know  if  this  clarifies  your  doubts  or  something  else  is  required.
 
 All  the  Best  and  Happy  Fishing   :thumb:   :thumb:   :thumb:
