    Aquarium TV Stand

    Usually don't post very much but I do enjoy reading everyone else's post and getting some new ideas for my tanks. So I had a 55 gallon sitting around in my garage and I needed a stand for it. Thought it would be cool to make it sit low and I can use the top to sit my TV on. This as far as I got with the project and you can see there is a small door for feeding. Then for cleaning all I have to do is move the TV and lift up the hinged top lid. My lights just came in the mail today and I will have to get them mounted before I paint and move it into the house.....

    not a bad idea but i would beware of the moisture coming from the tank that might cause the tv to stop working prematurely.

    Just about finished it up.

    I took the led light brackets and flipped them over. By doing this I could mount the lights to the lid and I would have to deal with moving them if I need to get in the tank for cleaning.





    The play sand I added ended up clouding the tank, so I did a water change and I think I will have to do another one.


    I have to install the heater and the air line then it will be ready for the fish to be moved over.....

    Did another water change and that really helped out a lot. Added the fish from my daughters tank and that's it, I'm done with this sucker.......

    That looks sweet. Is there no filtration?

    Thank you it turned out better that I thought it was.. The filter is kind of hard to see, I will get a picture of it when open it back up again. I used a AquaClear 110 that I use to use on my 90 gallon. I wanted to put the biggest filter I could so I didn't have to get in it all the time......

    Brian,
    I did a cleaning the other day and here you can see the filter better. Then also in the second picture, all I have to do is move the tv over to a chair to get in for cleaning.
