Hi there.
It has been quite some time since I have been on this forum and I figured this would be the best place to get suggestions for the space I have to work with.

I have just setup my dream tank after all these years and while it is in the process of cycling, I figured I would begin planning out the bottom rack on the 125g stand.

I basically have about 74 inches length by 19.5 inches width to work with minus a mid support that takes up around 4 inches in diameter.

I plan on putting 2 wooden boards and will cut out around the mid support.

Which combination of tanks would you put and what would you stock them with?

Thank you for any suggestions.

A pic could help. How much vertical room do you have to work with on the bottom tank? I would be biased towards getting a small enough tank that it's not awkward to service it.

I've stopped wedging tanks under other tanks. The issue is one of service and visibility. Tanks under other tanks end up being little more than a distraction and annoyance because they're fiddly to service, and difficult to see.

Sorry. Not helpful.

Thanks for the replies. The stand is 23" between the top of the bottom rail and bottom of the top rail.

I have about 30 inches on both sides of the jack post in the center.
