Hah. So I just wanted to catalog a build I did with a flat back hex tank and a stand made of cinder blocks. Dimensions of this tank are 67 x 9 x 16.5 I started with some cinder blocks, painted them black with spraypaint. I didn't like how wobbly this stand is because of its narrowness, so I found the studs in the wall behind the tank and added some braces. I plan to add 2 more braces at the top to hold the inside lip of the tank to the wall as well. At this point I'm doing the plumbing, it is bottom drilled but I had to redo the parts because it was all glued into place previously and had to be broken when the tank was removed from the wall it was mounted in. I also put a background on the tank. At this point I redid the background and painted it a royal blue color. It looks a lot better. I hung a basic shop light over the tank, which has since been replaced with a 3x54w t5ho fixture. I would have liked to put some track lighting above it since it's conveniently placed along a wall but not until we move perhaps.
