I'm moving my tank out of my mom's office, and she's sad about it and wants me to put another one in there. I'm going to downsize it to a 40 gallon but all the big name brands like red sea and waterbox she hates the stands for. So I'm going to have to set it up from scratch. But I can't find a stand she would like! The picture is of the style and color she wants. Light coloration and a rustic farmhouse look. Could anyone help me find a stand similar.yo that for a 40 gallon that I could put a sump inside? She also says it has to be a cabinet so she won't see any filtration or pipes.

Build it. Or contract a local woodworker. Or repurpose a piece of furniture she likes.
I hate building furniture. I've built 2 of my own stands to find that out lol. She may be willing to contract a carpenter for it. And I may be able to reinforce something else. Thanks for those ideas

Check Antique shops. I got a large Spanish sideboard there for my 32G with storage below. I use one side of it for tank controls/equipment/ato water, and the other side for storage.
Older furniture is larger and built solid with actual thick wood. I don't trust putting hundred of pounds on Amazon furniture.

That's actually a pretty good idea. I'll try that. Thank!
