I was recently given a new fish tank. It is 55 gallons but only 28 inches wide. As a result, it is crazy tall. I am racking my brain trying to find aquarium stand that I feel comfortable putting it on. Does anyone have any ideas that will cost me an arm and a leg?

What about a wooden coffee table?

It would be less height making it more stable and if your lucky you may find one second hand that is both wide enough and solid enough to hold the weight of the tank.

A Tv stand may also work though I'm not sure you would find one wide enough, of course it also depends on the length of the tank.

Getting stand advice is a contentious issue because no one wants to be responsible. Smile

That said there are a lot of great ideas on the web, and if you don't care too much about looks, you can make something rock solid for next to nothing using inexpensive 2x4.
