The Petco Brooklyn aquarium stands are constructed from hollow steel. The steel sides are bolted together. This makes the stand relatively light-weight, while being very sturdy.

The weight capacity of the Petco Brooklyn aquarium stand is the model gallon size. For example, this means the 29 gallon model stand should hold a tank of no more than 29 gallons. However, rocks, substrate, and other tank decorations can be added onto this weight.

For homes with floors that are not completely flat, the Petco Brooklyn aquarium stand has a solution! The stands have adjustable steel and rubber legs to adjust to any elevation inbalance. If your floors are not completely flat, simply adjust the legs so that your stand will be level and secure. The adjustable legs also ensure that the stands rest safely on carpeted flooring.

The Petco Brooklyn aquarium stand offers high durability and reliability at a low cost. The stand is made from hollow steel. The Petco Brooklyn aquarium stand has a modern, sleek black design to fit any home setting. The Petco Brooklyn aquarium stand is a good investment as it will last you for upwards of 10 years due to its high durability. 8' wood studs were purchased for the construction of stands from 10 gallon to 55 gallon aquariums. 4 studs were required for a 24" or 30" tank, and 5 studs were required for 36" or 48" tanks. The height of the legs for each of these stands was the "standard 28". When you are picking out your pieces of lumber for this stand don't be tempted to choose the cheaper, low grade stuff. Use only pieces that are straight (not warped) with no open knots and an attractive grain (if you are going to stain the stand). This lumber may be a dollar or so more per piece, but the elimination of a number of headaches and quality of the end product will be well worth it. It’s hard enough to keep small hands or curious pets paws, out of an aquarium when it is at a higher level. Move the tank down to nearly floor level, and problems are sure to follow.

Another problem with a double tank stand that few people think of is the weight issue. The floor may be strong enough to hold the weight of one filled tank, but two filled tanks in the same space could be too much in some locations. This is particularly true with larger tank sizes. Ten gallon tanks are not likely to be a problem anywhere, but two seventy-five gallon tanks are a different matter. Combined, they come to a whopping 1700 pounds when both are filled, all of that weight resting on a mere 48" by 18" space. Always estimate the total weight and verify your floor can handle it.

Lastly, the lower tank is more likely to be exposed to drafts and cooler air temperatures than the upper tank.State-of-the-art reptile habitat and fish tank stand & canopy is a high quality aquarium furniture with powder-coat finish for added durability and moisture resistance.
