Grubhead Posted July 12, 2021 Share Posted July 12, 2021 I've used a towel in the past and don't remember having any issues with water damage. It's been a long time though and I wonder if anyone else has used them to protect furniture used as a stand? For my two previous aquariums I used plexiglass cut larger than the size of furniture (a nightstand, and an old radio cabinet) and it works fairly well, but I do sometimes spill and water will get under the plexiglass, so I have to carefully lift and dry underneath. The latest 6.8 gallon aquarium will ideally go on a dresser, which cannot be fully covered with plexiglass and there won't be enough extra space to lift plexiglass and dry underneath. The aquarium does have a thin foam sheet on the bottom, but I considered putting a towel underneath in hopes that water dripping during a water change would be absorbed, but not damage the dresser. I ruined a desk years ago when water and the aquarium caused the veneer to come off when I moved it. 😞 I know...a stand dedicated to an aquarium is ideal, but that can't happen in this space. Anyone have experience using a towel or something else? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
