Good morning and Happy Mothers day Team, I just purchased a 65 gallon 36x18x24 and want to purchase a stand which can hold a 30 gallon breeder under it. Do you think if i split a muscle rack in half 72x36x18 is safe for a 65 and 30 gallon filled with water, fishes, rocks, wood and decor? I have linked a few places selling it below as reference. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Muscle-Rack-Silver-5-Tier-Boltless-Steel-Garage-Storage-Shelving-36-in-W-x-72-in-H-x-18-in-D-UR361872PB5P-SV/300097687 https://www.walmart.com/ip/Muscle-Rack-Black-36-W-x-18-D-x-72-H-Five-Shelf-Steel-Shelving-Unit-150-pound-capacity/35584046 https://www.walmart.com/ip/Muscle-Rack-Silver-Vein-36-W-x-18-D-x-72-H-5-Shelf-Steel-Shelving/54134491 Do you think 65 gallons which holds about 772 lbs with just water in it would be too much for a limit of 800lbs per shelf especially if I split it in half? I would appreciate any guidance and advice. Hopefully, someone has tried this before. 🙂 I am also open to any suggestions as well. Happy Mothers day again everyone!!!!
My lfs ,which has been around thirty plus year's, hardly ever gets real monster fish, Oscar's are usually the biggest thing they sell. But about a month ago I seen my dream fish of ten years or more and I fought the urge until last week. I'm now the keeper of a Indonesian datnoid, it amazes me how in just the week I've owned him how out going he is. He greets me more than my fahaka puffer or even my dog's. I look back twenty years ago and think about some of my other large fish and can't think of any that were super shy at the store but were so out going at home. He's currently in a 20 gallon, he's only about three inches, but has a seventy-five gallon then a 225 waiting. Luckily I've been in the hobby long enough to have the right tanks for the future growth, even though it's slow with this species, I just gotta dig my 225 out of my friends basement.
