Why don't you build one? That way you can design it anyway you want!

Most people who live in NYC live in small apartments. Like me.
I'd love to build my own stand, except the only space to do so is the kitchen on the dining room table.

Recently my friend purchased a nightstand from bob's furniture for his tank...they are pretty high and look fairly sturdy. You might want to check it out in case there is one that matches your home decor.

A few people have used the IKEA Besta stand with good luck. The stand fits a 60P sized tank near perfectly.

I bought the Petco Newport stand. Its sturdy but not so waterproof. I poured too much water in my tank and it leaked overnight and left a bloated splotch. Its $44 right now. The best deal I've seen. Its a lot cheaper online. I bought it for aroune $100 inc tax at the petco in college point. All in all, it worth it.

Seems like a good deal, but I'm going to need the cabinet for the canister filter.
