Construction of a Custom StandFor a 75 Gallon Fish AquariumAfter talking about it for years, we finally decided to embark on a new hobby of fishkeeping.Myself being the sort who is incapable of doing much on a small scale, I suggested we start with a 75 gallon aquarium. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Talk about your profit margin.These are very popular stands, made by one of the top companies and found in every fish store, so they must be adequate for the job. Still I figure a 75 gallon setup will tip the scales at somewhere around 750 pounds so I wanted something I had confidence in. I looked around the net for some plans, just to save designing something from scratch, but the majority of what I found was just how to make the same thing I saw in the store.


After all I know alot of herp keepers enjoy their fish quariums as well.Also, this same stand will work for a standard 90 gallon tank as well. This will distribute the weight of the aquarium over more of the floor space.The other two pieces will be the center braces for the front and back.
Everything you've built so far is designed to support the weight of the aquarium, and it will do a fine job. Take your time on this step, and make sure the doors are placed where you want them before attaching them to the hinges.You may also want to cut a 1x2 to fit under the top frame on each side between the center brace and the corner post. Stain it the color of your choice, and attach the door pulls and you have a nice furniture quality stand that will support 10 times the weight of a store bought one for less than half the cost.Here is a picture of the finished stand in use.


The aquarium is not finished, it is in the process of completeing the initial cycling of the water. If I do decide to do that, I will add that to this page.The retail price for a 48" aquarium strip light is around $82 here, and I will not pay that much money for a plastic flourescent strip light.
All the associated aquarium equipment will plug in there and only one cord will go to the wall.
