@wayneo1978,
It's cheaper and safer to buy a ready-made aquarium stand. Metal is stronger and most commonly used. Be aware that a 20 gallon tank with sand, water plus pump and accessories may weigh 200 lbs

@TomTomBinks,
I'm assuming he/she means a 20 gallon (long) aquarium.

@Ragman,
Indeed. I've discovered that for most of us, ready made devices not only work better and for less total cost, they also look much better.

WRONG! 1g = one goldfish in length. Similar to getting the height of horses using tiny minuscule Trump hands as measuring unit.

@tsarstepan,
OK, so a 20g tank would be about ... 40 inches? Thank you, I was not aware of this unit of measure!

@TomTomBinks,
Well, you know. . . . All goldfish are not the same length, but not all feet are the same, either.

@roger,
Maybe someday in the far future they'll finally standardize the g. for now we just have to wing it. (fin it?)
