I'm trying to find a metal shelving where the top shelf is between 33 to 36 inches high, and the length and width can accommodate a 20 gallon long. The height requirement is to keep it level with a countertop at 36", or slide under the edge of the counter at 33". It's also to keep it safe from my kids to put anything in the tank. Then I'll have the encase the shelf in something so my youngest doesn't try climbing. I'm looking into metal because it's considerably cheaper than wood. And I don't have the ability to make my own 2x4 stand. I've searched so much, but not able to find. So I was wondering if any of you who use shelves for a racking system, if it's something you can take apart so it's not higher than 36", or lower than 33", and can comfortably handle a 20g long
Ok this is my thing, I bought a metal stand from lowes (4 tiers adjustable shelves) I'm alittke nervous about putting multiple tanks on it. Weight wise I should be ok. I plan on putting plywood over top of the metal racks to better support the tanks. Anybody else use this type of metal shelves for there tanks? This is my Saturday project for the fish room. Just an FYI biggest tank I planned on putting on it is a 60 gallon. Have multiple tanks also, 55 and 2 bow fronts and a bunch of 20 highs. Am I good? Any advice?
Hello Everyone, This might be a silly question... I have a shelving unit that I'm wanting to put two 5.5g aquariums on (side by side, on the same shelf). The shelving unit is metal, with a slotted surface. Is it necessary for me to put something underneath, like wood, so that the surface underneath is not broken up and is instead smooth? Or are the 5.5g tanks light enough to not be a concern? Thank you!
