Dear fellow fish hobbyists. 

If your like me, You've searched around the internet - for professional step by step instructions you could use to build a quality DIY aquarium cabinet. One that's as strong and durable as the professional cabinets you can't afford (or don't want to pay) from an aquarium stands manufacturer.

I started with a goldfish bowl when I was 5, my first 10-gallon community tank when I was 10.  Now, ... I run my 130 gallon reef tank. I've always had at least one aquarium and loved to watch the inhabitants go about there daily activities.

They always seem to have a calming or soothing effect on me -  no matter how hard my day might have been.

Over time I've used a number of methods as stands for these tanks. Concrete blocks, milk crates, other furniture, cinder blocks - you name it! 

For the larger tanks I've owned. I gave in and bought the cheap black aquarium metal stand....but really - all it did was support the tank.  It did nothing to hide the usual mess below, dangling cords spare parts fish food etc.. No wonder my wife never wanted it in the living room!

These set-ups were always confined to the basement where they where hardly ever looked at by anyone but myself.

What I wanted ....of course, was one of those beautiful classic oak aquarium stands ..... A SHOW TANK with cabinet and hood....YES - the style the "aquarium stands manufacturer" would charge me an arm and a leg for! Talk about a Profit Margin!!

Since I refused to pay (and could not afford....) such a ridiculas price for the custom aquarium stand I wanted, I began thinking that maybe I could build something myself instead.

Like everyone that's busy.... I wanted  something that could be accomplished over a few weekends.  

Of course - their were other concerns to work out as well.

I'd like to think I'm a decent woodworker/handyman - but the truth is - I realised if I was going to build a professional, high quality cabinet for my aquarium. I needed good plans that were clear and concise. 

This cabinet had to be built properly from the start. I wanted something similar to aquarium stand blueprints...Something that could be followed step-by step.

Concerns of other things like weight ...and especially it's looks. It had to be something (when finished) that looked like it belonged in the room I was putting it.

After talking with other's wishing to build a quality DIY aquarium stand - the same concerns seemed to ring clear from everyone I talked to.

What we're REALLY all looking to do is......

  1. To Save Money .... - If this is to be a DIY project then the biggest goal should be that the end result is cheaper then buying a ready made cabinet at the local fish store.

  2. Produce a top-quality, professional cabinet something that would look as good -  or better then any "aquarium stands manufacturer" version.

  3. Follow a simple step by step process with instructions that the average person could understand. A "blueprint" if you like ....

  4. Create your ultimate show tank - One that will stand the test of time and keep looking great.

  5. Save Time - The average person doesn't have the time to deal with woodworking projects like this that won't work or end up abandoned in the garage or basement floor.

  6. Use plans that are adaptable to needs. Not a cookie cutter design your forced to deal with from the store.  You want a custom aquarium stand that suits what you need it for.

  7. Construct something your truly proud of... create an eye-catching showpiece aquarium ...something you'll want to show off to everyone and proudly say that you built it. 

  8. Create something that will last - not fall apart - Lets face it...A lot of moisture, spills etc happen around a typical aquarium.

Since I have a tendency to embark on "personal missions" that tend to get out of control...I decided that, since I couldn't find what I needed anywhere - I'd create them myself... 

I took my personal "wish list" of features, plus concerns from others and created a blueprint for the cabinet I wanted to build.

Surprised by the feedback on these initial very adaptable plans I've expanded to different sized set-ups ....

Now - with any of the DIY aquarium stand plans you'll find on this site you'll find .....

  4.  -- A definite sense of pride - Nothing compares to the feeling of pride and satisfaction knowing you built one of these cabinets yourself. Show it off to your neighbours buddies, in-laws, etc etc ....

  5.  -- You can use these plans for future endeavours ...convert these plans to larger or smaller tank sizes. Simply recalculate the measurements to fit your particular set-up.
