I'm not sure that this is in the right section, but I'm trying to find out about tank:stand ratios. I have a very sturdy china cabinet that I'll be converting into my new tank stand. It is approximately 43" long and a little over 13" deep. I was planning on getting a 45g (36" x 13" x 24")...but will a sturdy stand accommodate a longer tank? I don't know enough about it yet, should I stay away from overlap as much as possible?
