Aquarium Stand

Hello! I recently bought an aquarium 60L18W24H. That's close to 900 pounds of water, not including tank, 2" soil, 2" gravel/sand combos, fish and live plants. For some reason I cannot bring myself to trust the ones at the store and I am not looking to spend a lot on a stand.

What are your thoughts on using this? Holds 1400/1500 pounds. I see no reason it shouldn't work.

Two-Shelf Wide Span Storage Rack - Particle Board, 60 x 18 x 36"

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Watch out for particle board because and water can cause it to weaken and crumble. I would use real wood

I’ve actually used a few of the uline equipment for my fishroom, and it’s awesome! That said, I am using the heavy duty steel rack and table for the many different tanks I have ranging from 75g-2.5g and it’s done great👍
