Show your unique stand for Nano tanks..

I am trying to convince my wife to add a tank in our living room and I believe with the right set up I can reach my goal.
So show me what you have your tank sitting on.

We bought a storage unit at Target. The wife loves it because she can put the kids toys in it.

Here's my 12 Long stand I made last month. I was tired of shoes laying around the house and blocking the door way. I was also even more tired of having my beatiful Mr Aqua 12 Long in the basement soooo two birds one stand.




75G, 29G, 20L, 12L, 10G, 5 Nano's, 3 Betta bowls

Had a friend weld this from 3/4" tube stock, then had is powder coated with a textured finish.



A heavy cabinet stand would not look right in this room.

I've been thinking about an antique washstand - something with a marble top and cabinet space to house the filter etc. Craigslist has several in my area for around $100. They're typically oak or other hardwood and have a sturdy build.

I'm in the process of making a table for my Fluval Edge. The table will serve as dual purpose so I am designing it to be a little large. Right now it's 22"x26"x3'

It's pretty simple in design but has some nice design features. I'll post pictures once it's all stained and such.

If you're into wood working then you can of course make whatever you want but I used finished oak wood for its sturdiness and that wood is pretty pricey.

This is my custom stand I made for my ADA Mini-S. Its basically a Zak Designs tray, with a 3/8" Plexiglas sheet cut to the same size as the tank, screwed into custom aluminum leveling legs below the tray. Wanted to chop the handles, but since its melamine, it leaves an unfinished appearance. The tray has a 1" 90 degree bulkhead in the back with drain hose going to a bucket. Since this is an office, I wanted to make a water catchment system, for that unforeseen circumstance.

Don't mind the tank please, it's temporary scape. This was more of a proof of concept.

I Like this look. I have something similar(just far less neat bellow :P ). Also i'm a fan of your lighting. The use of track lighting is very clever.

I have one similar to Dogfish's, though it's 1" steel with rounded edges. Custom weld job. The top is not a full plane, just the perimeter with a crosspiece from front to back. Shelf below is Plexiglas for the floating look. This is for a 90P however, certainly not a nano.

Cool idea. Did you secure it to your wall?
