I am looking for something from Ikea to serve as a fish tank stand (60 litres, 2 feet tank).

Currently, I have found this MOLGER Bench, https://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/20241452/,



Apparently it can hold 100 kg.

Will this be suitable? I don't mind it is short, in fact I prefer short height ones..

If not, any other alternative? Thanks.
will definitely get mouldy...

Please get wrought iron stand instead of fish tank. Should be less than $100 from Nayang Seaview. Ikea wood stuffs are not that reliable, especially when you are talking about fish tank, something that holds water with livestocks and with electrical stuffs. You can imagine the disaster if the stand gives way. Only some types of wood can be used as aquarium stands and Ikea's types are definitely not one of them.

Fukai any good? Looking for a contractor to build/landscape my waterfall. Their koi ponds look more like ornamental ponds TBH.
None of the examples on their site seem to have enough depth, and in many the fish seem to be photoshopped in.

On the other hand, their landscaping work seems pretty good.

And also
Most of the time they dun feed those fishes and spam salt
Before fishes die of any sorts they get sold so the risk is most of the time transferred to buyer.
I am a little skeptical about LFS. I see them selling fish to hobbyist that grow to massive proportions - like RTC. I wouldn't dare keep a RTC in my 10x10x6 pond...

Sometimes really need to do some research before buying any fishes, if not it will be disastrous.

redtail catfish can grow up to 5ft so don't playplay. When i first started silly me i keep a rtc in a 2ft tank within 6month all my fishes gone and the rtc grew until 1ft.

Yah agreed, I got suckered into buying pleco and polypterus endli for my small tank, now increase tank size but probably need to find a new home for them.
