I have a JBJ picotope, and I'm at a loss for what to use as a stand that doesn't break the bank. I don't have room for another desk, so I definitely need something pretty slender. Was wondering what everyone else is using. Thanks!

I have one of these 12" x 12" Closetmaid stackables under my 2.5g:



$20 at Home Depot or Lowe's or Walmart...

stand for a 3gal pico

one word: wall-mount.
okay, so it's a hyphenated word.
but don't you think a wall-mounted shadow box, custom built to fit snugly around your tank sound good?
you can even use cheap wood, like pine, and stain it so it looks nice.
a DIY project that won't cost much, but could look great, if you put in the effort.

Thanks for the suggestions! I ended up buying one of those closetmaid stackables for $15 at Home Depot. It's not a perfect fit, but it'll work. The base of the picotope is about 1/2 an inch wider than the actual shelf :( .
