We have a few small fish tanks at our house. I have them sitting on top of wooden furniture, so I needed to find a way to protect the wood from any splashes or dribbles that might happen.
I went to the thrift store and purchased microwave turntables. They come in a variety of sizes and are usually under $5.00. They are perfect for small tanks and because they are raised up on little feet you can easily stick a paper towel underneath to soak up a drip if necessary.
What a great idea. Thanks
Great idea. I have one under my coffee maker.
Excellent thinking because so little nubs of feet will allow air to get under the plate so trapped humidity doesn't wind up ruining the wood instead. I have glass tops on wood furniture with little small plastic discs under each corner for that reason.
