    125 Gallon Reef Tank Stand

    Hello everyone,

    I am currently setting up a new 125 gallon reef tank and I am currently in the process of building my stand. The wall the tank will be going on requires the stand to be as narrow as possible & the bottom cabinet has be to able to fit a 12 3/4 wide sump. In these attached pictures you can see that I have 4 2X6's in the back along with 3 1X6's in the front. My questions is whether or not I should be concerned about the 1X6's in the front with supporting the weight. Does anybody have any expertise with this? I would greatly appreciate any information you could provide.

    Thanks

    It seems to me that the way you have the three 1x6s attached in front, that the weight is going to be mainly supported by the screws. would you want to put another 1x6 in front of those, with a snug fit between the top and bottom for supporting the top of the stand?

    Just make sure to have a strong architrave.
