The stand: I personally like to build my own stands so I can design the stand however I like. If you do decide to build your own stand, please be sure you build it strong enough and level. Remember that water weighs 8 pounds per gallon, plus the weight of your decor, substrate, and equipment. Its safe to say that an aquarium weighs 10 pounds per gallon in all. So a 50 gallon aquarium will weigh roughly 500 pounds. Larger aquariums over a few hundred gallons may require you to reinforce your floor. Please consult a contractor before installing large aquariums to ensure your floor will hold the weight. If you dont want to build your own stand, ask your local fish store to recommend a stand that is right for your aquarium.
To the beginner aquarist, the task of setting up your aquarium can appear daunting. But you really only need a few basic elements to get started.
