    Hey guys

    I have just moved house and need to get a new stand made up because my current one won't fit in the intended spot for the tank....

    In my student days this would not be a problem, my first stand I built myself with the help of a friend. Nowadays I don't really have that luxury of time, and need to get one made up. The cabinet to fit onto the stand, not being urgent, I can do piece by piece on weekends etc.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to get one made up?

    Thanks

    Looks like u gonna be left making it again:razz:
    Try someone who does gates and fencing - Check the classifieds for welders there - When it is done you can get it hot dipped galvanised at either Phoenix Galvanisers or Durban Galvanising. Phone Marco - im sure he knows someone who welds!

    ok picked up my stand during lunch today - looks awesome! before I move the tank across to the new stand this weekend, what can I put underneath the stand to firstly protect my tiles, and secondly make it level? my floor is rather skew...

    Did Danny build it for you Dan? I usually place it straight on the tiles and level it with metal plates or coins. On this stand that Danny built me, he put a type of rubber sticker underneath.

    Hi guys, i am in need of a 2 tier stand to hold 2x 3ft fishtanks. I dont think anyone sells them, so its a custom job. Im not sure how much it will cost so i need a quote, if its too much i'll just get a 4ft.

    Can somebody direct to a person who can quote me a price. I am in durban
