    im new to this forum and im heather:;hi2 . i just got a 40g long fishtank that measures 36"W x 17"H and the stand would be trying to build is this mesurement 36 1/4"W x 27 1/2"W. i got it off of craigslist for $30 and now im haveing a hard time finding a stand for it to buy, so i decided to see if i can just make one for cheaper than stores. how much would a diy project cost for a 40g long tank stand be?

    I guess it would depend if you wanted it to look nice or not.
    If it doesn't matter what it looks like you could make it for about $15
    Get a couple 2x4's cut and screw them to size and you have a stand

    Yeah precisely. 2x4's will be the easiest way to do it. 4 on the corners and a couple bridging the gaps will work.

    If you have any welding skills or know of someone who does then steel could possibly be even cheaper!

    @ CichlidSwaga... Did you change your name?
