I have 1 establish 29g tall that is super max stock. I had 1 pair of ebr and 1 pair trip red and the territory was just too small. Also, my other stock on my signature was also cram into it as well, now those are in the 30g long.

THIS IS THE 1ST PIC WHEN IT WAS SET UP.


This is what it looks like now.

I had to put the rest of the stock in the other 30g long.

Now I have a 90g tank that I just got off craiglist. I recently decided to use a bookcase for the stand and many of you recommended another stand. I was maybe :hitting::hitting::hitting:
Here is the items that is waiting to go in the new tank.

This tank is going to look great. I really like your 29 gallon.

Also i think Christmas moss would also be a good choice to use if you want to do a moss wall.
i had christmas moss and it never pick up, however, the java moss is like pearling in that temp tank which is weird. The lightning on it is bad.......

This is what everyone should do before building, measure measure measure!!! I didn't have a 90 degree ruler to measure so I had to compensate. You can probably see it from extra piece on the bottom of the structure. I just want to mention this is my first build of any furniture ever..........so excuse the newbness.

I would avoid using the plywood as a leveler. Call me suspicious of wood/water, and of course we all know your tank won't leak...but.

at 1/4 inch, I would swing by the local HD/Lowe's and see what they have available in slate tile. I'm guessing you could find one that will fit and last better than ply.

In the tankstand build of my mind, I will be going with a tiled slate surface, or possiblly some kind of counter top remnant.
