    it worked perfectly...WORKED...notice the past tense... i was re-arranging the room and the tank fell over (empty off course)) weirdly, the tank survived, but it knocked a decorative rock off the table which crushed threw the leg of the stand... i later bought a new one
    Did those plans help?

    An easy way to create a stand can be to take an existing furniture and reinforce it
