very nice, only one thing I would have done differernt, I would have extended the sides about a 1/4" past the part the tank sits on that way it would prevent the tank being "pushed" of the stand

with big tanks its not an issue because they weigh so much but tanks under 75g I would worry about

no I ment like an extra lip to keep it from going over the edges
never thought of that, my other stands didn't have a lip so I never thought of making one.

for anyone one local,I could hook you up with something, but shipping would be crazy, that stand must weigh 100 lbs. once I paint it ill have to snap another pic of it in place next to my couch.
