Misa Posted November 29, 2022 Share Posted November 29, 2022 I have a 75 gallon Petsmart (Marineland?) aquarium stand that was holding a 40 gallon breeder. The bottom seal failed on that tank so I purchased a 75 gallon Aqueon (Petco) tank as a replacement. For some unknown reason the tank overhangs either end by 1/8 inch...the stand measures 48 3/4" and the tank is labeled as 48 1/2". My thought is to cut a piece of 3/4" plywood for the top that is 1/2" longer and wider and screw it down. I could band the edge and paint it black so it still looks nice but I don't know if it would work long term. There is also a slight, just under 1/8" bow in the center of the stand so I think I need to figure a way to brace the center? Would this work? Am I missing something? Is there a better solution (short of buying a new stand)? Thanks!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
