ok so I have a 4' Vivexotic Viv in black to match the rest of the furniture in the front room. In my old house it use to hang on the wall above my computer desk which was fine but now im in a different house and it sits in the front room i want a stand (also providing cupboard space to store everything) the only problem it has to be the same size as the viv so about 4' x 2' by 2'

any taller and it wont fit under the stairs. Im really struggling to find a black aquarium/vivarium stand let alone a black one the right size.

Anyway I decided to look into building one and I cant find a Uk supplier of black melamine board except for one that you need a trade account with.

So can anyone point me to either a stand matching the above description or somewhere to buy 4' by 8' black melamine board please?

Bunnings and Mitre10 both stock white melamine in 450 and 600 wide sheets. 900, 1200 & 2400 lengths.

yes kathryn conti board is the same as melamine so i found out yesterday evening. Thanks for looking for me that ebay result will work out kind of expensive though with the amount i need (like 5 sheets of 4' x 2') and nearly 50 quid for what would cover two sheets :shock:

I read on another reptile forum that someone built their viv in black ash melamine with glass for less than £60 but that was back in 2006-2007
