littlebirdie Posted December 22, 2014 Report Share Posted December 22, 2014 I know I need photos of this and I will post them as soon as I go back upstairs but I had to tell you guys about this rack. Lowe's had these black heavy duty pvc or some type of non metal module sets that you build shelves with using 2x4s. You can set it up as long as you want with shelves at whatever height. They are super sturdy and the only thing you are limited with is width of the shelf. I use 10g tanks and have loads of room behind them for the enormo AquaClear HOBs as well as a surge protecter with timer on it for lights. We put a layer of very thin plywood covering each shelf to distribute weight evenly but anything (like foam) would work. I have this in an extra bedroom and I have to say they look good in there. I left the wood raw and it's kind of a cool look. The modules are made so that you fit the ends of the 2x4s in them...no need for making extra cuts for bracing. They were up in no time! My husband builds custom furniture and redoes old wooden boats so he believes in overkill on everything and he couldn't believe how great these were. Photos to come!
