Post a pic of your stand for your nano!

Hi all-

I'm currently (slowly) working on setting up a GLA 6g high-tech nano tank. I know a lot of you probably put your nano tanks on a desk/dresser/etc., but I am looking to kind of showcase my tank in my house. I am thinking of making a stand myself, but am looking at buying one as an option.

please post pics of your tanks/stands! If I make one/buy one, I'll want a cabinent/compartment to hide the co2 bottle and eheim canister filter.

This, but with a laminated shelving piece on top from HD and a Garden Mat on top. I also use a piece of particle board on the bottom for tools, ferts, filter, etc.

Mine is an old sewing table. It actually folds out and you can put a sewing machine in it. It also has great storage underneath.

5BodyBlade: That's a great stand.

Care to link your build journal so everyone can check it out?

Desks can make excellent stands, too.

Did you have the SCAPE engraved on that tank? That's fantastic!

No, it's just a sticker! Thanks!
