I bought this wire rack at WalMart as it says it can hold 350 lbs per shelf, and I just want to set up a 10 gallon for my betta fish.

This is the stand that I got:


Would it work? A 10 gallon tank should way like what, 120 - 130 with everything in it? Water, sand, rocks and drift wood.

I can bend the rungs with my fingers, maybe move them is a better word choice, so I wasn't sure. but i would put a piece of plywood under the tank to support it anyways!

I am bumping this up as I wanted to put a 20 long on this, as I want to upgrade my tanks, but I am afraid that it isn't going to be strong enough even though it says up to 350 lbs.
Has anyone used this stand / something similar for a tank this size? I have two 5.5s on it and I may be paranoid (very likely) but I am afraid it bends a tiny bit in the middle - so I have no clue if it will support a 20 gallon long!

Should I put it on the bottom though and maybe would add some plywood to help support it?? (Again, I am probably just being paranoid haha)
