Check out my avatar. Had a stand custom built for my 56 gallon column tank. Since it was going to be black, yellow poplar was used to keep the cost down. It's very solid and I'm really pleased with the selction of wood.
I'm not sure. Had it built through Preuss Pets in Lansing MI. The paint finish is very resistant to water damage and very durable though. I should probably find out what was used in case I want to touch it up in the future.Thanks nice, what type of black paint did you use on it?
