Stand for a stand


something smells fishy
Has any one built a stand riser? The stand I have is to shorts for me. I want to build it up about another 8 to 10". With it being a 125g would you see any issues with that? Thinking 2x8 on end to make a box for the stand to set in then put some trim around it to make it look nice. Total the thing is only 48" tall, not cool, dont like looking at the light at eye level
