Definitely agree with the above about the stand. If that existing stand can take the weight, add a nice thick piece of wood on top that's the same size or slightly larger than the tank, stained to...

Although it's just a guideline, and mainly for beginners, it's a good starting point. It doesn't work on volume only though, as it will give a different stocking % for different tanks with the same...

Handy, looks like a good solution. I'm sure I saw someone do that on this forum. They'd also made their own lilly pipe. I seem to remember sand being used inside the pipes to avoid it flattening out...
