Ogpulchra Posted March 30, 2022 Share Posted March 30, 2022 (edited) I went with my boyfriend's building plan, despite feeling iffy about it. Now I'm worried about using it for my 33g long. The boards are 2x3s and the longest span is 50" between vertical supports. The tank is 48"x13"x13" and will weigh about 400 lbs. I know the cinder block stands don't have vertical supports under the corners, so I thought this would be okay. Should I replace the horizontal boards the tank will sit on with 2x4s or move the vertical supports so that they are directly under the tank corners? Or is this stand strong enough as is? I chose the 50" span because I wanted to put another 33g on the bottom shelf too. I will be adding some 2x3s across the back to prevent racking.
