tank question.

Hi everyone.
I got a question: i got 4 10g I want to set up for breeding
The stand I build was for a 20 long and a 10. I want to take the stand and use it for my breeding project but my problem is since I'm going to set the tank sideways(W). The tank is 24inch which the stand is only 15inch. Will the tank stress and break down? Don't want to wake up to a flood. Below is a pic just to show what I mean.
How the tank will be set.



Thanks for any help.

Hmm, I'm sure it possibly would be able to support it, but I would just go and get a stand that is actually made for aquariums.

You could get a large, thick piece of ply, as wide as the tanks, and screw it onto the top of the stand to make it wider. That way all of the bottom pieces of glass are supported. Are you sure the stand itself will hold that much weight?

The stand is made from 2by3 and plywood, should hold 4 10 no problem.
