Aquarium Desk Stand?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was researching a new desk and was wondering if the weight of a fully planted 5.5 gallon would be too much for this this one from Ikea or something similar?


If I could put my tank there would there be any weak areas that I should avoid putting anything heavy on? Thanks!

In my mind, 5.5 gallon is perfectly safe. The solid wood will distribute the weight nicely and wont mush up from spill. The front-center position would be the weakest, and that's where you'd never want it anyway.

For extra credit, I live close to Arkelstorp!

Similar desks may have a less tough surface, or be a bit unstable side-to-side.
