    Hello :)
    A while back, I posted some pics of my 15G and some members noticed that my stand was a bit of a risk (which I did know :)) as the tank only sat on the edges of the table it was on (see pics) and the 8G went underneath.

    My dad was throwing out a nice stand with wheels which was ment for a tv I guess, so we took the wheels off and I decided it would make a great fish tank stand!
    And I also found a new place to put tanks ;)

    EDIT: and a pic of the old 'stand'

    WOW! That looks awesome! The TV stand almost looks like it was designed for your tank. :)

    Thanks :D, I believe you're one of the members who recommended I got a new stand?

    Hehehe, probably, the thought of a tank busting is one of the things that keeps me up at night! :p

    This new "stand" looks a lot safer!

    Haha :p

    Well I've done the 'wobble test' whereby I give the stand a little push to see if its sturdy and it didn't budge at all :) and the whole bottom, as you can see, touches the floor so its a lot of area for the weight to spread out :)

    If it was made for a tube TV (not flat screen) of that size, it's going to be fine. Those older TVs weigh a TON so it should easily support the weight of that tank.

    Just a bit of enabling- clear some space in your stand cupboards, room for plenty of betta tanks in them! ;)
