    Don't build the stand until the tank arrives. You really need to get a feel for the size by having the tank in front of you to determine the required height. Keep in mind reaching the bottom of the tank once on the stand unless you don't mind doing maintenance while on a step ladder. Because of the height of my tank (30 inches) I must use a 3 tread step ladder and I HATE it to no end.

    Rob, I will have the same issue you have on your tank onces mine is all setup. the stand is 37" off the floor + tank is ~34" plus euro-brasing. I was thinking of building a big step all around the tank so I can walk freely.. something easy to remove yet wide enough to walk on.. like 2'x2'x1' cubes would be ok i think.
    Chris, I would still go 36" stand.. more eyesight in my mind.. and easier to work under. I have a 24" stand before.. never again.

    Hey liv .. my sump is BESIDE my tank so I don't need much head room under it. I have my tank setup so that when i am sitting on my sofa my focal point is dead center.
    Yes a removable walkway would be great for maintenance.
