new subscriber catching the posts on stands. I agree with most of
what's been said and here's my story.
over 20 years ago, I worked at Capitol Aquarium in Sacramento and had
several tanks on pine ugly stands. Since moving fish tanks was not a
great bunch of fun, I gradually got rid of all my tanks during my
undergraduate days. About 3 years ago, I saw the first Amano book and
wanted to get a tank, but was not rushing in since all the stands were
still cheap and/or ugly. The solution was to have a stand made by the
same guy who has made some furniture for our house. The stand is maple
finished mdf with walnut accents. My wife an I think it's very nice
and certainly goes with the rest of the stuff we have had him build.
Cost was about $800, $500 plus a bike in trade.
I just bought a new tank in Sac at O St. aquarium, along with Fluval
filter, heater, sand, gravel and lights. I am waiting for them to get
back to me about a hood options. I may have to ask my cabinet maker to
make a hood. CO2 injection system was ordered on line. Maybe I'll
start adding water this month?
