Ok, so I just found an 80 gallon on Craigslist that we would seriously consider, EXCEPT that it's not pictured with a stand. I messaged the seller to see if they have one, but I figure not or they'd have it pictured too. So what do you put your 80 gallon on? I know it's going to be HEAAAVY. (A nice $300-400 stand is not in the picture for us, obviously or I wouldn't be asking) and the only diy thing I can find online involves cinderblocks and plywood, and that's not going to fly here either. We need something in-between! More importantly, am I stupid for even thinking I could handle a tank that size? We've had a fish for exactly 4 weeks... But this is a hobby that both my husband and I are finding we're interested in, and it seems smarter to just go big and skip all the in-between stuff maybe? However, we would probably not just walk into a store and buy an 80 gallon, this specific tank is a good deal.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgCycmudb5I&feature=youtu.be I love my new tank. As far as cycling goes, I will follow a moderator's advice. This is the moderator's plan of action for me. 1) Go with over the counter BB's in a bottle. 2) Do the "long" cycle. 3) Panic if cycle is not going well by Jan 1st. 4) Beg some one for BB's in the mail.
My forty gallon will be on a computer desk exactly like this. I bought this desk new last year. I think it will be ok. Does anyone see problems with my stand? You cant tell by the picture but the table has six feet altogether.
