    Hi Guys,
    i need some advice with regards to the stand.
    my new 350 litre tank will be arriving soon sometime this week,
    dimensions are:
    1220 x 450 x 650

    with regards to the stand,
    will brazing the stand be better or welding?

    i reckon welding it together will be stronger,
    but im not 100 % sure.

    can anybody help?
    i will be making the stand 900 high, is the height correct for this?
    thanks in advance

    Hi welding is stronger than brazing. My tank is L1220×W800×H600 stand is 1000 high this is for standing and looking. I had it 700 high and was not happy with bending down to look inside the tank[​IMG]. Here is a pick of it now.[​IMG].just my personal preference.
