Probably not. Water is very heavy, and the difference between a 10g and 20g tank is obviously double, as there is twice the water plus the additional weight of more glass and more substrate. Tanks must sit on very solid supports, as any "give" can break the seal and cause leaks, or crack the glass itself.
