8-10" is about the average, some do higher, some a little lower.

 

Answers vary.

Well good news new tank is on the way from live aquaria and as a bonus I get to keep the old one not sure what I'm going to do with it now but i at least have a back up pump and filter socks. The rest of my equipment is on the way too so i should be able to get set up soon. Got the stand built today too let me know what you guys think.

The stand looks great! I like the old wood look. Did you get recycled wood?

Thanks guys I'm no master carpenter but i thought it turned out ok, and I think it should hold the weight. Can't wait for the rest of it to show up now! On a side note anyone have any idea what to do with the other tank, I hate to just smash it up and throw it away but I don't think I'd trust it to hold water either.

How bad is the chip? I have chips on the top of my 10g and it's been fine.

 

Can you take pics from other angles?

its more then just a chip it has a 1"-1.5" crack/spit right at the top. It's kind of hard to see but it's all the way through the glass.
