Total height of 5# CO2 Canister + Regulator?

Pretty soon DH and I will be getting started on building a version of this stunning stand.

I'd like to be able to keep both filter and CO2 set-up under the stand. It appears I'll need to leave 21" or so clearance for the filter I'll likely purchase (Fluval 406). Would that be enough space between a bottom shelf and the underside of the stand? The completed stand height will likely be in the 30" range.

Thanks!

My 5# tank is 17.5" tall + maybe another 1" for the gauges

Cool -- I was concerned that it might be taller than the filter, but it looks like that shouldn't be the case.

As long as you have a good 20" you should be in the clear most range 16.5-19" and add 1" for most regulator's height
