    In trying to come up with posts for every day I have ramped back up my fish passion and think I might try to start tackling the fish room idea again. So with that said, what are the best shelves Y’all have found for a fish room? In my particular case I will be using mostly 5 and 10 gallon tanks so the shelves need to maximize for those. I’ll probably end up with 1 or 2 larger tanks for the bigger species but I figure I can either find a solo stand for those or just accommodate them in whatever my primary stand is. I want to make it as affordable as possible but also don’t want to have to worry about them lasting or getting a little wet and clearly they need to handle being fully packed with aquariums.

    I was looking at these which seem nice since it could be one tall rack or 2 shorter ones. That opens up a few more options and possibly makes things expandable later on.

    Honestly, the garage utility shelves work great imo. Link
    This one has a 1500lb capacity PER shelf
    1 gallon of FRESH Water = 8.34 pounds
    They come in different sizes. I would recommend getting plywood at the minimum over the wire racks to distribute weight. Some come with plywood already. Painting and priming the wood will have it last longer.
    I swear the one I bought had a 2500lb capacity, might be wrong.

    The cheaper method is going wood construction if you have the skills and time.

    The one you posted is exactly what I was talking about, BUT I don’t see a weight limit. I found that price of a $60 range has a much lower weight limit than the $100+ range. I would sleep well at night kmowing my shelf was at half capacity.

    The ones that are welded and just lock into place are better than any bolt together.
