Getting back into the hobby. Have kept 10g and 20g tanks off and on for 30+ years. Typically had community tanks with a male betta as the focal point. Over the summer got my first "big" tank, 28g that I set up as a SE Asia backwater biotope with a male betta and 6 Albino cories, with 4 kuhli loaches to be added. I want to add a school of Harlequin rasboras to this tank, but need to figure out what to do with the cories first; they'll probably be divided among my other tanks. I'll have to see how Bart the Betta likes that idea; he's become fond of the cories in his tank and hangs out with them. He'll even eat with them when they gather around the tablet I drop in for them. Planning on turning an old 39g glass aquarium that I got from a friend that she used for her iguana when it was little. And another friend is giving me an old aquarium stand (looks like one anyway) that she's using as a TV stand. Looks like it'll hold a 55 or 75g tank......think I'm gonna have to move out of my townhouse and into a bigger place!!!!

Welcome to AC community forums. Nice to have you.

A 55 gallon tank when filled weighs 625 pounds and a 75 gallon weighs 850.
A 55 is 48x13 and a 75 is 48x18 so please make sure this TV stand can hold that amount of weight! I got my 55 gallon stand at Walmarts for $80 and it's best to make sure you have a stand that is built to hold that amount of weight.

The stand is actually an aquarium stand. Looks like on of those tall stands for show tanks. My friend's sons were just using it as a TV stand. But I'm gonna double check with her sons to find if it actually is an aquarium stand.
