I agree with you. Now, I see this is an acrylic tank, so I do not know if this also applies to acrylic tanks. However, considering that water is very heavy, especially if the tank is larger, I'd personally have a full stand even for an acrylic tank - just to stay on the safe side.justhelping said:I'm new here, so please forgive my forwardness. I was browsing the pics & noticed yours. This tank for your sister, I noticed is off the edge of the table on both sides. I heard that this is bad for fish tanks as it puts uneven pressure on it.
