I never thought about the siphoning. That could be a problem or at least a hassle. I'll wait and see which stand I get (industrial shelving or pretty stand) to see just how much of a problem.

How would you attach a stand to the wall? I can image the industrial shelving would come with some kind of attachments.

Hmm, well Izzy has one of those super python things anyways, right? :p
Why anchor it to the wall? I wouldn't do that to my lovely new bedroom, lol. But you could use the holes along the sides I guess and figure something out. o-o

I use a simple "L" bracket; one end connects to the stand the other is the wall. These stands tend to be a little on the shaky side (the tank wont fall) and since I live in an earthquake zone it's best that I anchor mine.

When cleaning and such it -is- a little wobbly, I must admit. There were times I thought our stand was going to fall down, but it never did. An anchor to the wall would have been a good idea. I'm sure it depends on the shelf, though. Some may not be so wobbly.

yes, when cleaning is wobbly but like you said it never fell over or concerned me.

I'm not exactly in a hotbed of earthquake activity (we've had two in the 17 years I've lived here), but it will be on carpet floors. A brace might not be a bad idea. Nothing a little spackle can't clear up when we decide to move. I think it will ultimately depend on which I buy (so whichever is cheaper :P) and how shakey it is.

Olympia, I was thinking about the python, too. I use it on my QT tank that sits on the ground. That will probably be my best bet. It really doesn't create strong suction, but it's the best I have.

Since I'm going to change the substrate on one of the tanks I plan to move around I'm going to wait until I have the sand to do this. It's going to be one long day of moving tanks and changing substrate.... blegh!
