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

I am sure you can still buy handbook with all info you need on woodprix. Just google it.

How many

Автор Shaquan Hardy ( назад)
I know this is pretty old. but I would lik to know if there is a way I can add doors to this and maybe a shelf and if u have a write up for it. Thanks a Million.

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)

Well done, and thank you

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!

Автор Joshua Sachs ( назад)
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 build...

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?

Автор Jerome Cooper ( назад)
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 all.

Автор Reef Raf ( назад)
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 reinforcement?

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

Автор garrisonent1 ( назад)
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 LetsPlayFaded ( назад)
what size screws did you use?

Автор Cichphreak ( 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 ( 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.

Автор jackel2126 ( назад)

Автор Deano ( назад)
Nice stand, its a tank :). Its scary how flimsy some store bought stands are.

Автор BigAlsTanks (140 лет назад)
All in the description.

Автор jackel2126 ( назад)
so wat were that size of the cuts used for the stand and the size for the plywood

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)

Автор alrightythan1 ( назад)
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 vid

Автор noE7six0 ( назад)
Nice stand

Автор BigAlsTanks ( назад)
You bet, glad I could help. Thanks for the feedback. Good luck with your build.

Автор balcerolibre5 ( назад)
