As stated in another thread, I'm a stay at home dad that's trying to move my 3 new Bettas into their new 10gal divided home. Since I don't have a lot of money, everything has to be on the cheap. BUT.. I will not compromise the safety of my Bettas to save a few bucks.
I have a 10gal aquarium but no where to put it. I live in an apartment so space isn't something I have a lot of. I was looking at tank stands but I can't afford the $30+ on a black tank stand. (Must be black to match the living room decor.)
So I thought of building one. Materials would cost almost as much to buy as would the tank stand. So.. I remembered I had an inn table thinger from Ikea that I bought for $5. I cut it in half. Drilled new holes for the legs on the new back of the top. And pretty much screwed the other half to the bottom for support. So the legs wouldn't slide outwards.
I had my little sister stand on it to make sure it was good to go. She weighs about 130lb so I figure it's good enough for my 10gal.
Let me know what you guys think.
