Uses some cinder blocks. I had my 55 on 4 stacks of three. With a wooden top self with side supports. I used bed slays so I’m not positive of what size they are. Super cheap and effective puls if you really want the shelf’s you can make a wood layer that will act as a shelf.

If you have an older house, made sure to center the weight over flour joists. I've heard tell of aquariums breaking through the floor.

@bellicose. Yes it is an older house and we did place it above the load bearing joists.

My wife still gives me grief about the cinder blocks I used for my "entertainment center" in college. They supported a large television (CRT) and a decent sized pair of speakers, with shelves from a unit that previous gave up its skinny legs. I painted Grecian columns on the front with some perspective and shading. I rather enjoyed them.

Corinthian tops iirc.

Corinthian is just too busy looking, I much prefer the more subdued Ionic. Or even the later Roman Composite.

I need to make a fish tank stand on wheels. My living room will be getting totally rearranged soon and I might have to relocate the tank a few times before I'm happy with it.
