    What is the ideal height for a stand.
    The height of the tank is 650mm.

    Personally the higher te better.

    You do more work under your tank cleaning setting fiddling with stuff. You can always get on a small step ladder to reach the tank but then the tank mustn't be to deep.

    IMO around the 900mm mark. great for viewing the tank and you will have enough room under the tank if you have a sump..

    Doesn't make the tank look too high as well..

    My Stand is 1m high, Best thing I ever did. You can stand and actually look in to the tank without having to bend over the whole time. Also as mentioned before you have plenty space under the tank.
