  1. So I have a 2"x4" shelving unit made by husky. The dimensions are 47 3/4" x 23 3/4" but I want to put 2x 20g high on the stand on either end with 2 10g in between them anyways they are 26" wide and I want to add 3" to the plywood to support the edges of the aquarium but here's the question do I stick with 1/2" plywood or go 3/4" because of the overhang?
  2. So my black Friday purchase was this husky shelving unit Model #426007 I need more tanks and this unit with the center bracing and 1000lbs per shelf seemed to be the best option. The unit is 48"x24"x78". Now my dilemma is when I set it up how many inches should there be between the lip of the tank and the bottom of the shelf above it? I was thinking about some 10g and 20g tall tanks, don't think 20long will fit unless I place them sideways. If anyone has any other suggestions and or advice please don't hesitate to share.
  3. Greetings! I bought a shelving unit that can support 320 lbs per shelves. It can also be separates to make 2 unit which I would do. I would like to place a 20 gallons long on one unit and a 10 gallons on the other. But after calculating, my 20 gallons would be almost 300 lbs and I am afraid the wooden part of the shelf will bow. I found a similar one but it says it can support 800 lbs if the weight is equally distributed. It can be split in 2 as well. And I could have a 29 gallons instead of a 20 gallons and it would weigh around 400lbs. But once again, I am afraid the wooden part might bow. Any of you have one of these (36’’ x 18 ‘’ x 72’’ Mastercraft, Edsal or Muscle rack) and could give me more information or tips?
  4. Do you think this would hold a 20 gallon long and two ten gallons? Each shelf holds 1,000 lbs. Link to the shelf: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Gladiator-5-Tier-Steel-Garage-Storage-Shelving-Unit-with-EZ-Connect-48-in-W-x-72-in-H-x-24-in-D-GARK485XGG/301657823
  5. I am looking for shelves to hold 20 longs, 20 highs, 10s and 5.5s what would be a great option that is also not super expensive. I have seen the gladiator shelves but they are like $230 dollars.
  6. Hey everyone, I have a question about shelving. I am setting up two 75 gallon tanks. I was going to go with the cinder block and 2x4 method till I saw the Gladiator steel storage shelves. I am really tempted to get one of the gladiator units, but I wanted to know if anyone has experience with them, including any issues with weight support. Also how much space is in between each shelf as the tanks are 18.5 inches tall.
