    Hey everyone

    I just had a reality check and realized the tank I'm buying tomorrow will end up weighing more than me I can't just put it anywhere...
    Does anyone have good 20 gallon tall aquarium stand suggestions?

    Thanks so much

    My daughter put her 29 gal. On an antique chest of drawers.
    You have to find something with a flat level top and a very sturdy base.
    If no furniture is available, buy a few cinder blocks and a big piece of plywood and make a quick DIY stand.

    I found this for cheap on FB marketplace the guy says it could hold a 20 g but I am starting to become skeptical. There are some pretty flimsy ones around the internet for sale however...

    Those metal stands become a lot more sturdy with a tank on them. Just make sure that each corner of the tank contacts the stand.

    What ever you buy be sure that it is level on all four sides. This means using a proper level. Over time an out of level aquarium can over stress the seams and lead to a leak or broken glass.
