    Josh at Aquarica is quite handy and does great work. Might want to see if he can assist... though I know he is real busy these days so he may not have time.

    Wish I could help but Im a bit too far away!

    You mention you don't have the tools to cut, but do you have a drill? If you can get a plan/idea of what you want online and mark down all your measurements, I am sure they will cut the pieces for you at Home Depot. I am not sure what the fees might be, but here on PEI they do it for free. Once the wood is cut all you need is the drill to assemble, if you don't have one, maybe even buying a cheap one could still be less than buying a ready made stand in store.

    What size tank is it?

    I was just at Kent today to buy the lumber needed for a rack. They did 14 cuts for me (just standard straight cuts) and was no charge. I just needed them short enough to fit inside my excuse of an SUV. Home Depot will do a few cuts for free, then charge a dollar for the cuts if there's a lot of them.

    For what you will pay someone to build it, you could probably buy the tools you need. I bought the lightweight cordless Ryobi drill, circular saw, chopsaw and jigsaw during one of the sales. The cost was, if I recall, less than $250 total. Heck, it even came with 2 batteries. I have used the drill and chopsaw (it's only good for up to a 2x4) more times than I can remember.

    For a 9 gallon tank, 300 is a lot! I know the 1 fish we used to have in Charlottetown could order in nice wood aquarium stands that would be cheaper than that! Have you tried checking with the local shops to see what they can order in For you?

    That does seem high for a nine gallon stand. Can you send pics or describe what you are looking for? I have two sort of stands here that I am not using, bigger than you need but should work. Call or text me at 902-225-5853.

    By the time you buy the wood and hire somebody to build one,it'll cost way more than just to buy one off kijiji stand and tank included.
