    Since my 10 gallon is overstocked I found a great deal on Craigslist, for $30 I picked up a 30 gallon tank with a marineland biowheel filter. Both old and used but for that price...heck yea!!

    Now I need to build a stand that will be both sturdy and look decent. Here's my drawing with simple simple plans.

    Input?

    Oh geez that's what I'm most worried about lol. With the help of my dear ol father...we built a raised bed (for me). He goes into overkill for the sturdy side of things. I also figured my dogs would like a den...

    I have access to endless pallets, and a saws-all. I also have extra chopping block from a custom made counter top. The chopping block would look fabulous - I may go that route.

    Update - I have purchased an older dresser that I'm in the process of gutting... Photos to follow. General design will remain the same
