Maybe you could find another table or dresser or something for a bigger tank. Check craigs list, yard sales, etc.. You might even find a complete set up, tank and stand and save lots of $$.

Do you think my stand looks strong enough for the 20?

You never want to have an aquarium that does not fit the stand. In other words hanging off the edges. You should have it fit, or larger. And you always want to make sure it is level, especially with larger tanks.

No, the base will fit the stand perfectly on the 20 high. I'm just not sure if the stand will support the weight and I don't know how to tell. Although, looking at some of the metal stands online, perhaps it is stronger than I think haha:)

Well figure a 20 gallon tank is approximately 170 lbs.

Is it bad to have a towel under the tank? I keep one under it to catch water drips, but would the slight unevenness from the soft towel be a problem at all? Just wondering, thanks!
