Can a 36 inch dual stand take a 29 gallon aquarium?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm thinking of buying a dual stand to put a 40 gallon breeder on top and a 29 gallon on bottom. I know the 29 gallon is 6 inches shorter but I was wondering if I could put some wood down on the bottom so the tank would sit flat. Any input is appreciated.

    I have the steel rack from Lowes that I am using as a double stand. The 40B is on top and the 29 is on the bottom. The base is 36x18.

    That's a pretty neat setup you have there. If I had something like that the 40B would be a display tank with a 29G sump down below for a reef tank.

    OP, if you put a flat piece of wood on the bottom for the tank to sit on, I suggest placing a piece of foam between the tank and the wood.
