    Just looking for some suggestions for building a PVC shelf for my LR. I am hesitant to stack all of it as I dont want it to topple. I would also like to get some of it off the floor for better circulation. I have a few very large pieces of rock that I plan to leave on the floor, but would like to build a shelf of sorts in the middle.

    I have read thru some posts and think that I want to use PVC. I'm not interested in taking all of the rock out and drilling it. I may however buy some small pieces and drill them and use zip ties to cover the PVC structure.

    Just looking for suggestions here. Any input would be helpful. I have a 75 gal tank and prolly 30+lbs of rock that I will be placing on the shelf. The other 20+ will stay on the floor.
