Little Tunas Ada 45f Build


I probably wont have this started until late January but heres a sneak peak of my idea.

I'm going to turn this ikea stand into a custom Ada 45f stand with a door and shelf inside.

I like the concept. Looks pretty good. Nice stone arrangement too, if you can find some to make it.

Great rendering. Cat is a nice addition.

Do you know what the weight capacity of the ikea book shelf is?

I was always curious if one of those would hold enough for a tank.

I always love watching other's ADA 45-f's. This one should be great!

@golfer_d I have my 45-f on that same Ikea Expedit shelf and it's fine. No wobble or bowing.

These are pretty solid. I used to have a 10g on it and Ive seen them used with larger tanks

Not sure what the weight capacity is but their site says the max load for a shelf is 29lbs
