Anyone know a good place where i can get a nice stand?

I'm going to upgrade to a 135 or a 150 and dont want to drop over 1K on a stand/canopy.

I want it to look nice since it'll be a display tank in the living room. Does anyone know a builder that is local or a website where I can get quality for a little less dough?

Thank you!

Cinder blocks wrapped in either a black fabric skirt or your choice of nice looking wood.

see if someone would build you a carcass and then skin it yourself in the veneered plywood of your choosing. personally, for a display tank, i would go with a nice birch plywood.
