    In that case the expedit is out and you want something that allows you to use a 2215 filter. You'd want 40cm or 15, 16 inches height for one of those.

    Another tip, if you do decide to go for an eheim classic, get the plus edition that includes the taps. The taps make doing maintenance very simple.

    Hey everyone,
    In a few hours i will post some pics of the piece of furniture I was considering on this thread...it really is a sturdy piece, I already own it, and it already has storage space...

    I would like each of your honest opinions on whether I should try using it or not...I'm almost willing to bet the weight that is on it now (stereo equipment, 32" CRT (not flat) TV, and large stereo speaker) is close to 300 lb. if not more...If I can use it, great, if not, then i will find an alternate

    Sorry for going off the original subject matter, but I'm good at that sometimes

    Thanks again for all of the wonderful help and advice...

    M-

    This thread has been very informative, both for the canister info AND the stand info! As a newbie about to get a canister and struggling with finding a low cost stand, all this info is great!

    Plus, surprisingly, I think I actually have something to contribute!

Very popular with the aquascaping crowd because you can create flow without disturbing the surface and losing precious co2.
    In all the reading I have been doing I learned that another way to position the spray bar is just under the surface of the water, tilted on a slight upward angle so that it ripples the surface without splashing.

    I'm back, everyone...glad you have had fun with it, wgoldfarb!...the folks here at the AC are always willing to help, all you have to do is ask...and yes, I can see the spraybar working in that position quite well, too...

    Anyhow, on to the pics....this chest of drawers (I guess is what you'd call it) is at least 30 years old, according to the wife...it was her mom & dad's when she was a kid

    I was wrong if I implied it was all hardwood, it's not, as you'll see in the 2nd pic...the front of it looks to be 3/4" solid wood, as is the trim on the front and sides...the top looks to be thicker solid wood...but the sidewalls look like very fine grain particle board to me...the backing is just that cheap nail-on panel stuff (they had that 30 years ago?)



    This is how it sits now, with the TV, stereo stack, and one of my old classic giant Fisher speakers that Angie wants me to get rid of




    Here's a fuzzier pic with the drawers removed:



    I'm thinking I could cut a piece of 3/4" ply to replace that "panel" stuff in the back, I KNOW that would shore it up a bit...

    The desk is 69" long, 33" high, and 18" deep, meaning the tank would fit exactly along the edges of the front and back of the desk, with room to position it on one end or the other, or in the middle...

    Thoughts/opinions/recommendations greatly appreciated!

    It was explained to someone somewhere on this forum years ago the reason it's not a good idea to put larger tanks on dressers is because they are not designed to hold that much weight on the top. The supports are just not there. It does look like a solid dresser, but if you look inside the supports for weight are side to side not up and down. It is solid and it might be ok, but it's not specifically designed to hold 450-500 lbs on the top, so it might not be ok.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I think it's ok to hijack your own thread, but you might want to contact a moderator and ask about the rules.

    Thanks for that, I'm beginning to believe that this would not be a good idea myself...it "looks" solid, but looks can be deceiving, I've learned...

    I'm thinking 40 gallons of water may not be that fun to clean up, along with a pile of collapsed wood and pieces of wood wannabe..

    Thanks for your truthful and brutal honesty, as always...I respect your opinion greatly
