A lot it would have been cheaper for me to get premade kitchen cabinets with some sorta counter top ... However... I think my high cost was due to the fact that I didn't have all the wood working materials I needed... If u got a friend with all of the wood working materials then the cost would equal a cabinet u buy

Nice stand! But the depth too much no? Looks like you can put two 12 gallon side by side.

the depth is a bit much but thats because the tanks gonna be moved forward a little so i can drill holes into the back for tubing to come out through the top of the stand

so thanks to the excitment and the couldnt sleep thinking about how to do the tank... i called out of work today... (im sick with aquascaping...) played around with the peices of wood... i think i like how it came out... so today im gonna fill the tank with substrate and set up the filter and everything and have a go at it ....

just wondering how people feel about the way the wood is set up... there are still alot of peices inside the box so i can toy with the wood scape...

I like the concave approach. Good first try for sure. It helps that you have some sick pieces to work with!

I'd use them, but I wouldn't space them out like that. Maybe put them all to one side of the tank.

Yup exactly. Now you can have some plants poking out from all around them stones in the back. And in the front center and right you have enough space for a nice-looking ground cover.
