    You really only need enough to stick your arm and reach the back of the tank. I would say 18" should be fine, and maybe even less

    Wow 18 inches is nearly half a metre, would have thought about maybe half that if I had to guess

    I know you are looking for just a blanket answer but there is a ton of factors that can go into your setup. At the end of the day it is how you want it to be. Try a mockup. Get a few boards,books, bricks, what ever you like to use and stack them up on a table. Then see the height you like to work with and can that fit into your rack height for the setup.

    Thanks a lot for your input. actually I was looking for people who already have experience with stacked tanks and giving their input here, on how much clearance they have and if they found it to work or not, enough, too little, to much etc...

    thanks for your input though it is much appreciated too

    I am going based of guess. I helped set up Dave's fishroom/garage and he had quite a gap with his racks, but he had many close to the floor:

    I also noticed this picture and I am guessing around 25cm (around 10 inches), however Dave only had 2 tanks on top of each other, I think I ay be pushing it at planning 3 or 2 and a sump.

    Keep in mind, those are some big tanks he had. If I remember correctly, most of his larger tanks were all 100+ gallons. I don' think I have a pic of his racks on the wall side, but those were smaller tanks and I believe they were stacked 3 high.

    If you are planning to stack 29g or 40g L, then you can stack 3 for sure. You just have to do all your calculations based on how much space you think you need.

    Do you have the tanks already? If so, you can do the calculations based on the dims of the tanks plus the plywood they would sit on.

    I only did two shelves for my tanks, I wanted to be able to store things underneath, and have room to work since the 29's are lined up with the short side forward, it can be hard to adjust heaters, the sponge filter, or do much of anything at the rear end of those tanks. Have to use a small ladder / 2 or 3 step stool to work on the top tanks.
