Is This A Good Stand? 29 Gallon Tank

  1. Piaelliott Well Known Member Member

    I am not sure if I should trust this stand for a 29 gal. It seems to be somewhat top heavy.
    Does anybody have this stand, are you happy with it?

    There is room for another tank at the bottom.

    It looks pretty sturdy from over here. Look at the joins and welds. If they are solid, I wouldn't worry.

    I personally have never trusted those stands just because of how rickety they look. I'm a welder so I know it would hold but they just seem too top heavy. If there was another tank underneath then maybe but I just don't like them. I'd taken a good solid tv standard any day.

    I think I'd rather have my husband build a wood stand.

    Nope get rid of it. I have one for my 10g tank I am currently looking to replace. It will hold the weight but is very unsafe nor is it level at all. My 10g still only needs a decent bump to knock it right over.

    Currently it is used as a side board and pretty wobbly :)
