I used what came with it. Seems better than ply wood, almost like a cement board. Kind of like hardy backer

Go to Home Depot dot com.

Click on "Storage & Organization". Click on "Shelves & Shelving Systems". Click on "Free Standing Shelving".

There are several versions available.

It'll take you 20 seconds.

Though, you'll most likely need to replace the included shelf wood with plywood for stability. Several on the forum have done so after water exposure caused degradation.

Holy shrimp foods above that rack lol! And you got lights all over the place! Is it hard to do water changes with the lights like that?

And on the bottom shelf, are those the walmart 5G water jugs?

Those are the walmart 5gal jugs. Depending on how I am feeling I either use my RO at home and hook it up under the sink or I run to walmart for 1.88 a 5 gal (Walmart is 2 blocks away and on my way home).

Yeah when there is sales I stock up, think I have the same $$ invested in product as I do shrimp.

I had 48" Dual T8's, but I am still working on how to mount them. The racks ar 48" and the light fixters are just over that, so I have to drill into the sides or run hooks through the cement board. I am ok with all the clip on CFL's right now, water changes are easy! Takes about 20 min

What you dont see is the 4 bags of Africana, 2 bags of Amazonia, and 4 bags of DRL I have for the next set of tanks!

is your rack adequate for the weight? it looks like none of the tanks are leveled.

It does bow to the middle slightly but each self is rated to 800lb. So I hope so. I also skipped a step and did not screw the cement board to the rails
