 u  should  use  a  stand  made  of  25mmx25mmx5mm  angle  made  of  iron  or  MS(mild  steel  whatever  u  call  it)..
 I  m  using  the  same  thing  for  the  same  dimension  of  tanks  ..
 
 Pls  see  to  it  that  u  get  it  painted  with  red  oxide  and  then  the  colour  of  your  choice  ..This  will  give  max.prevention  from  rusting...
 
 bye..

 If  you  want  to  protect  your  iron  angle  frame  stand  for  a  long  time  from  rusting,  you'd  better  use  Epoxy  primer  and  Epoxy  paint.    :wink:

 I  was  browsing  through  www.garf.org  DIY  pages,  and  what  I  discovered  was  this.  â€œPlace  the  dowels  under  the  bottom  piece  of  glass.  It  is  important  that  the  weight  of  the  aquarium  is  supported  by  the  front,  back  and  sides.  There  should  never  be  any  support  under  the  bottom  glass  as  this  could  fracture  it.”
 
 It  has  made  me  to  think  again  regarding  stability  of  my  aquariums.  I  have  placed  my  aquariums  on  table  tops.  That  is,  the  bottom  glass  in  my  case  aslo  bears  the  weight.  Is  my  setup  incorrect.  Couple  of  years  back,  when  we  all  were  on  vacation,  my  10  gal  (tall)  tank’s  bottom  glass  fractured  and  till  date  we  are  unable  to  determine  how  could  it  have  happened  as  no  one  was  at  home.  When  we  arrived  home,  I  had  lost  all  my  live  stock.  Sad  
 
 Could  the  reason  be,  that  I  am  placing  my  tanks  on  tables?  Please  advice.
 
 PS.  I  use  thermocole  as  a  cushin  between  the  glass  and  the  table.

 Hi
 
 I  need  to  get  1  or  2  stands  done  which  may  be  3  feet  long  and  15/18"  wide  such  that  i  can  stack  3  tanks,one  over  the  other.Where  in  Bangalore  can  i  go  and  get  this  done.Have  any  of  you  done  it  through  some  reliable  sources  for  a  reasonable  price?I  dont  want  to  approach  any  LFS  for  this  job.Can  i  stretch  this  to  a  4  feeter  or  would  it  be  too  much  of  a  weight  for  the  stand  to  bear?
 
 regards

 If  you  do  not  have  space  constraints  and  are  in  the  process  of  building  renovating  the  building  and  you  do  not  plan  to  move  your  aquarium.
 
 Go  for  the  cement  one  with  cudappa  stones  as  steps,  Which  lasts  for  ages  and  also  can  have  goreous  designs  in  them.
 
 But  ensure  that  even  then  the  cusion  of  wool  or  thermocol  is  still  these  between  the  glass  and  the  cudappa  stone.
