How To: Build a 75/90 Gallon Aquarium Stand

Check out my 125 and let me know what you think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu0BaorBxRs&lc=H3CQLn8UR852euBf4eBhY5sEpXXTR7ByOEbwshw_Ed8&feature=inbox
If you want to take it even farther.
I know I didn't do the best job describing how to do each step, so if you have any questions feel free to message me. This is my take on an aquarium stand. It's for my Lake Malawi African Cichlids. Once the stand is completely finished, I'll upload another video of it.

4- 48" long
4-28" long
8-21" long
12- 15" long
1- 1/2x18''x4' plywood

great job thanks. I used 4x4's for the legs though.

**ATTENTION**My husband and I built this exact stand today. Following the
measurements in the description. Sadly, it is now a $50 workbench. great
sturdy build, but you need to add an inch to width and height. Because the
black trim around the tank add a 1/4 inch to the size of the tank. Using
the measurements below (following the video instructions) will allow you
this same sturdy build, with no over hang. Good luck!
4-28" (or 6, read below)
1/2"x16"x49" plywood.
(When we rebuild tomorrow, we are also going to put two additional boards
(one front and one in back) in the center to avoid dipping in the middle.
If you do this as well you need a total of 6, 28" boards)

Lmao @3: 09 he says, I have to get more screws, cuz if I run out I wont
have enough!!

Автор Elizabeth Can't Tell ( назад)
Looks great! I'm going to use your plans but without the supports in the
middle - I want the tank to go in the opening below so my kitties can sit
and watch the fishies swim without jumping on it. Then I can use the top
for knick-knacks!

How did you attach the plywood on the top? Nails? Screws? Glue?

Автор Big Fat Tony's ( назад)
excellent design. The weight of the tank is supported by the structural
members (the wood). I have seen many designs that support the weight of
the tank with the screws. I'm going with your ideas.

Автор Ziabis Oh ( назад)
Love the supports. That is what i am going to do. My friend says I don't
need all that but hey i want to be sure. Better safe then sorry... Awesome

Автор Micah Morton ( назад)
No center support? With a 48.5" long tank, do you worry about the top
bowing? Perhaps a diagonal 1/6 X underneath the top board to help
distribute the lateral load to the legs?

Great info but please use a tripod. Its making me seasick!

Автор Joseph LaVorgna ( назад)
i was wondering the total hight of the stand was? i am building it this
weekend, i cant wait. Im using tiger wood to face the front and 2 sides

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
Shouldn't have to but if you want to be extra cautious it wouldn't hurt at

Great vid mate! im using this design to build a stand for an in-wall
75gallon reef tank but it has to be 4 feet tall do i need to use extra

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
I think 3 1/4"

What size screws did you use? in the discription it didnt give the screw
size. thanks

Автор River Shark ( назад)
Looks good! I'm planning on building a double tank stand for my 90 and 55
gallon aquariums. Videos like this give me some good ideas.

Автор MiiTuBe1991 ( назад)
what size screws did you use?

Автор Cichphreak's Reef ( назад)
What kind of tank did you put on this stand? Glass or acrylic? Did you add
anything else on the top to make the base larger than exactly 48"x18"?
Because like I said, 75 gallon glass tanks have a black base that makes it
over 48"x18" which will cause overhang on a surface that is exactly 48".
You don't want a tank to overhang.

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
A 75 fits on there perfectly.

Автор Cichphreak's Reef ( назад)
You might have problems with these dimensions unless you have a tank base
that is exactly 48". Most glass tanks have a black support base on them
that adds 3/8" to the length and width of the tank measurements. I would
suggest adding 1" to both the 48" and the 15" measurements so you have
about 1/4" gap for wiggle room around the base of the tank. This will allow
you to add on additional pieces such as a more decorative outer shell of
the stand.

He put 4 feet rather than 48 inches.

I just made my own stand similar to this design but I made mine before
seeing this video mines for a 90 gallon stand

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
This would also work for that. Or just take 5 or 6 inches off the width.

Автор jamil manning ( назад)
Shouldn't the ply be cut @ 48"x18"? by the way great vid!!!

Автор lucas seney ( назад)
what about a 55

Автор MrHoney2U ( назад)
yea that will work

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
Thanks aquaman.

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
Thank You.

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
I think I'm just going to sand it down and paint it black and add a clear
coat. I think it should look pretty nice the way it is. Worst case scenario
I go buy a couple more pieces and cover it up.

Автор MrHoney2U ( назад)
looks good. are you gonna cover the whole thing in plywood? Glad to see you
beefed up the legs. If you add just one middle supprot you can add doors. I
done pretty much the same thing before. really easy and fairly cheap. Good
