Around 110-120? This tank has a bit of strangeness to the way it has evolved and that relates to how it came to be used with and extra stand to the side. It was a used/abused turtle tank with the top plastic brace broken, chips in the outside corner glass but the glass was clear--- and super cheap! So all that meant it had to have full cover, needed the corners hidden if it was going out front of folks, not hidden in the fish room. First thought was to build it into the wall but I was not staying in this house all that long.
So the stand had to be taller than normal to view over the dining room/ conference table and to kind of look built-in I wanted the trim and color to match the existing walls.
So I built a stand, set the tank on, added a wrap around front section and then capped it with the canopy to hide all the top ugly like lights, broken brace etc. As I was a fish only guy, I added two canisters and plumbing pipe which pretty much ate up space when it was used for dish storage and then later I wanted to add CO2. Rather than rework the early stuff, adding the tank outside was much easier.
Built to be taken apart in three sections, plus tank as I was planning to move. But this has turned out to be a place I like and have been here nine years!!
If a person wanted to get down to the really quick "down and dirty" he could use some of the round fiber tubes like used for pouring concrete columns. Notch for whatever tubing, pipe, etc. needed, a small plywood top, and throw some fabric over it ? Minimum time, effort as well as very space efficient?
