Got lots of stuff going on here, so I will try to write as concisely as possible.
Got baby girl coming.
Lost office where I kept my tank.
Office is nicer and cooler, so wanted to keep tank with kid but then decided against it.
Living room is the only other place but room gets hot during summer.
Decided to put shrimp and cool water fish in vase to keep in kid's room.
Tank will now be strictly amazonian fish as living room can get up to 100 degrees while tank will hover around 80 degrees F during summer months.
Living room is small, so gotta build a tank stand that doesn't take much space. Found some inspirations on ikeahack.com. And, found member "trenton" here at plantedtank to use the expedit stand.
Bought the expedit stand:
Notice the bracing. Also, the granite plate will be used at the bottom shelf to keep center of gravity low. Each one is 40lbs. I will be using two.
Painted the expedit stand:
Cut some holes in the expedit stand:
Stuffed it with tank equipment stuff:
Even got a UV light tube thingy:
