How To Choose The Best Aquarium Stand For Your Tank (And Your Pets)

(max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/special-aquarium-stands-1380776-final-5c64a7c3c9e77c000159cb3b. jpg) Aquarium stand is a piece of furniture that's large and strong enough to support your aquarium. The size, shape, and materials used in the stand will depend on the size and quality of the tank, budget, and aesthetics.

There are four options: the Spruce 1, the Sprundel 2, The Spruce 3 and the spruce 4. Glass tanks are twice as heavy as acrylic tanks. When filled with water and gravel, the weight of a 20-gallon glass tank goes from 25 pounds to well over 200 pounds. Water is a weighty material. It adds over 8 pounds per gallon to your aquarium's weight. This should be taken into account when choosing a stand. Acrylic is a lighter weight but because it is flexible, it requires support along the entire bottom surface of the aquarium. Aquariums under 20 gallon can be put on a well-secured solid shelf. When setting up aquariums larger than that, it is best to consider a dedicated aquarium stand. A stand usually has space built-in below the aquarium to hide equipment. . . .
