    I am in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin and am looking to buy a stand for my upcoming 80gallon rimless. Tan dimensions are 48x24. I don't really feel like building one so thought I would give this a try.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'm working on another Hickory stand right now that would fit a 18"x48" base... $365. Where are you?

    Ann Arbor, MI. So that wouldn’t work for a tank with a 36” x 15” footprint?

    You could always go with a bigger tank

    Sure! It's a flat top so you would have a little more of the top visible... More room for fish foods, test kits, etc

    Honestly you might want to plan this out.. Biggest regret is not good mg bigger.. And the bigger you go, the easier it is to keep everything in check.
