    75 gallons stand

    Hi,

    Anyone as a some diagram of a DIY stand... And I'm wondering if 2*4 would be strong enough to hold the weight of the tank... Or do I need to go with 4*4.

    Thank you,

    I used this page as the basis for a stand for a 75G: http://www.cnidarianreef.com/ [Click on the 'stand/canopy' button]. It's made from 2x4's as is plenty soild.
