I'm in the process of moving, and plan on setting up a 40 gallon reef tank. The main issue that I'm running into is I cannot find a wide variety of stands. The best one I've been able to find is the below one. It only runs about $60. My concern is the specs say the product weight is only 27 lbs, and you put it together yourself, so it's not welded steel. I'm worried it won't properly hold the weight of a reef tank. Any other recommendations?

Copy and paste to your search bar. Lol.

The ends look like they run top to bottom so I see no issue holding the weight of your tank.

Looks like it gets generally good reviews. I would just make sure it’s all square and the legs are plumb so there is no wobble or side to side movement.
Just curious why not build your own?

also a 65 gallon and a 40 breederare very similar in size and I know they make stands for the 65 as I’ve seen them. Might look into that.
