Size of stand


I just got a new tank and it is 31 gallons. The stand is a little bit smaller than the tank and I am wondering if this is ok. The stand is the right length and is flush with the sides but the front and back of the tank hangs over the edge about a half inch on each side.

Is this ok? Or should the stand be the same size or a bit bigger than the tank?

hi and welcome.
i would say that the stand should be of the same size as the tank,
or bigger,never smaller
then there will be no strain on the tank at all.

just watch carefully a tank that is to big can warp the stand
