Shipping on a metal stand, of the "wrought iron" style, will be expensive. Light but very bulky. Have you checked thrift or charity stores?
Have you checked your nearest Craig's list? It looks to me, like Fort Collins list would be nearest for you. but up and down hill could really mess with mileage.

Here is a 40L tank and stand for $75.00 in Commerce City

40 gallon breeder tank a wrought iron stand in South Littleton for $79.

35 Gallon Aquarium with Iron Stand and all accessories. $50.00 in Denver Lakewood Arvada Littleton, where ever that is.

Good luck.

I'm sorry, I went back and saw that you'd posted to the Colorado state sub forum.
I click on "new posts" and didn't pay any attention to the location.

Have you checked with DenverTankCollector? He has access to a lot of cool stuff, and might even have one stashed!

I sent her a message. I had to go look in my junk collection to see what I had. I am in the middle of a fish room remodel, making room for "just one more tank" so I don't know what I will have left over. I have a 29 gallon metal stand and I still have that old wooden 55 gallon stand I tried to send home with HighDesert. Its ugly but strong. Apparently too ugly for her, she has taste and slammed her car door before I could load it in.

Tanks: 2@100, 2@75 12@55, 5@40, 2@30, 30@29, 45@20, 10@10, auto water change system, all planted, endangered and extinct in the wild fish, many C.A.R.E.S list, lots and lots of angels, discus and anything challenging. Currently have many Killifish (Blue Gularis & 6 other types). My hobby is changing water.... +koi pond, planted outdoor tanks in garden.

LOL! It was the stand or the kid... I had to think about it for a minute. ;-) I'm still watching for your 20 gallon. I'll be up next week. I'll give you a call and maybe we can meet up! I still owe you cholla.

Lol! You'd have more money for aquariums if you "accidentally" left children behind... haha.

Sent from my phone, in the land of magical unicorns and rainbows!

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

Thanks, everyone... I have a few leads! My project is not aquarium-related... I am building a console table.
