Unless you fill the tank with lead, this should be strong enough.

What?! A DIY ADA Stand. I'm sure I'm the first one to do this, correct?! HAHA

I'm pretty sure I browsed through this entire thread and garnered an incredible amount of knowledge for how to build a stand. So thank you for all that gave me some unknown online help. I wouldn't have been able complete this without me lurking on this site.

Here's a couple of pictures of my recently completed stand. It's laminated both inside and out, with two doors instead of one to differentiate it just a little bit.





A few more pictures and my lessons learned can be found on my journal page:

I took this, a stand that was just a 2x4 built:



And painted/covered the bottom:

(it needs more work, the plywood the tank sits on needs some filler/sanding)

and built a canopy:

with easy access:
