If you are looking to build a multiple tank setup or stand for multiple aquariums for fish breeding projects or reptile tanks or bettas. Then this article is worth a read because it shows you how to set up this on a budget and you can add to the stand and create multiple tiers and shelves. Even if you are building this in a basement that gets water you wont have to worry about that because of the way this stand is built.
The Base of the Stand of the Multiple Tank Stand
This is easy if your building in your basement or are not good with wood work then the simplest thing to use is cinder blocks. Yes cinder blocks for the base of the stand because they only cost around $1.50 to $1.91 and major home improvement stores. Their is no need to cement them together because once you get all the weight on them they wont move as long as they are level.
You will need about 20 cinder blocks to build the tanks to about waist level to make it easier to bend over and get into the tanks.
The Top of the Multiple Tank Stand
Above is the video how to build it. Next is the wood, you can use pressure treated but you don't need to I used 2 x 4 studs and attached them and have braces on the bottom to help balance out the weight. The wood is around $2.50 at a hardware store.
So as you can see this is really easy to do on a small budget you can also cover the cinder blocks with a fabric sheet or build a wood frame to cover them up. So for under $50 you can build this and have a setup for multiple fish tanks or aquariums.
