Just saw this work bench on the Super Cheap Auto website:

Would this be suitable for 2 x 2 footers? (24 inch by 12 inch base)

 

thanks

Whoops didnt put the dimensions up...... probably explains the no replies. Anyway I didnt bother getting it as I wasnt sure, and the boss asked me today to organise a copious amount of shelving for the work shed so Ill explore the options then

I was curious but a little stumped as two tanks. My understanding is mainly the tank rim / edge needs support?

2 tanks as a 24x12 inch would fit 2 side by side with a little bit of extra room so the 2 two footers would sit easily within the dimensions of the bench top

dunno if you could get a single 48x12 inch tank

It’s mainly if you get any bench sag in middle. I think a single large tank would be fine. I’ve heard of either tank just sags a bit in middle or a gap between tank and base. Will see if I can find link.

True. I’m just looking for something cheap to grow out dwarf Cichlids in case I have another crack at breeding something

a 2ft x 1ft tank should have a volume of around 65L (if 14” tall) so 2 would only weigh in at 130kg plus a couple kg for glass and substrate / rocks etc. if that bench rekons it holds 500kg then it probably shouldnt sag with less than 150kg on it.

The more I think about it the more I’m determined to get in to breeding something again. Apistogramma have always been a favourite of mine, and I’ve only managed to get cacuatiodes spawning. Had stuff all luck with Panduro, but that was because I was working away a lot at the time. Will probably just built a bench to suit 2 small tanks myself and overengineer the crap out of it.
