Hi Everyone, I cannot belive my local fish store where I bought my 55 gallon stand from(Open Top). The dimensions the stand are 50x14.5 so the tank sits inside of the stand if that makes sense, on 2 pieces of wood (one on the left and right). Or if you are looking at it from the top it looks like ......... The dotted lines meaning that there is no wood under the tanks frame, the wood is only under brackets. My computer would not let me upload a picture so I hope you get the picture. Any suggestions on a stand or links to any good stands? Thanks.
