Stand for 40 gallon long

So I had a 25g tank, and now that I have more room freed up that I never thought I'd have, I was thinking about upgrading to an Aqueon 40g long aquarium. 80 bucks on sale this week. not too shabby. Considering a 40g breeder is usually like 100+ dollars. and the other sizes I was looking at were way more expensive. (50 gallon, 150.99, 55 gallon 170.99)

I think the measurements are 48 x 13 x 16?

Well does anybody know if a stand for something like this would be hard to come by you think? Cause I also know this is quite an unusual size.

Could it be 48x12x16? If so, a 55gal stand will fit it. If not, you may have to either build one or get a stand for a 55 and add a piece of 1x4 across the back of the stand.

I looked all over trying to find a 40 long and was finally told they were discontinued. Lucky you being able to find one! It should have the same footprint as a 55 as stated above so it should be pretty easy to find.

Good luck!

They still make 40 longs but they are usually a special order tank. I have one sitting on an old 55 gallon stand, they share the same footprint.
