Question on fish stand
Im about to buy a 55 gallon fish tank and was planning on putting it on a sturdy table i have however i think the tank is longer by 4 inches, is it possible to just center it and let it hang off each side by 2 inches? This would save me the money of buying a stand - thanks
That's a recipe for disaster. A fish tank needs to be supported along all four edges or else it will place stress on the joints and the tank will eventually fail. Also, keep in mind the weight of a full tank: a 55 gallon aquarium weighs 625 pounds full, with a tank heavily stocked with live rock and sand weighing substantially more. I wouldn't trust this weight on even the sturdiest of tables.
