Very sturdy for aquarium and good looking too. I would only add some colour to it.

thanks for the comments guys and if it were mine i would go for more color too but thats what he wanted a light wood strong enough to hold an elephant, his previous stand was ready to collapse.

That is a gorgeous stand for a fish tank! I want to build my own fish tanks one day and being able to knock out a beautiful stand like this would be amazing. Good job.
