> > > Well, I can't believe it. I waited two weeks to get the new stand for my tank, and it's the wrong size!!!! I waited all that time for nothing! No I have to take it back and wait a couple of more weeks. It is 24" wide, which is the width of the tank, but with the trim on the tank, the tank is 24.5". It is not only a 1/2" too narrow, but the trim on the front and sides of the stand are too low to hide the trim on the tank!!! Anyone know if the trim on the bottom of an aquarium is strictly decorative, or does it serve as support, also? If I remove the trim, the tank will fit. I shouldn't have to do that, but If I take it back, it will be a few more weeks. I'm gonna call the tank manufacturer and ask if it can be removed without voiding the warranty but I think I know what they will say...NO!!!
