New Stand Advise

I am having a new stand built for 90 gallon, which is around 25 inches high I think. The stand is going to be all OAK, but the stand builder said the stand would be 35 high. Does that sounds too high for stand on 90 gallon?

I have two stands for my 90 gallon tanks: ~30" and ~40-44".

The 40-44" stand makes the tank look great when you're standing there looking at it, but kinda bad when I'm sitting down as I have to look up to see the tank and end up getting blinded by my light.

The 30" stand makes the tank looks nice when you're sitting down (aside from my light on this giving me some glare, but I don't have a canopy for either tank), but I have to look down at the tank slightly when I'm standing up.

Depends on your height, also. If you make it too tall, cleaning it can be a hassle.
