    Yesterday I noticed that one of the legs of my stand was bending inwards and I immediately no longer trusted it, so I took everything out of the tank. There were no fish in the tank, just a bunch of sand, plants, and water. Now I just have an empty tank sitting on a stand I don't trust and I'm wondering if it would be safe to keep the tank on the carpet floor and start filling it again. I hate having an empty tank just sitting there especially since i was just about to start moving fish back into it from my other tank and I have no idea when I'd be able to get another stand for it since it's not a standard rectangle. The front two corners are curved and the front is also curved outwards

    What is the stand made out of?

    Metal or wood, if wood then you need a new one I have never had metal though.

    should be fine.

    but will be more work if you decide to get a stand for it later on.
