40g Breeder Stand???

So this is the stand I got with my used 40g breeder but after setting the tank on top I realized that the tank sits right on the lip of the stand. Also the stand seems to be put together with just glue and staples...and the wood is pretty thin if you ask me! Is this safe for my future reef setup? I'm afraid that with a slight bump the whole thing will collapsed or the tank will come off the lip!! Does it need reinforcement or will I just be messing with the design?

I'd say according to how much you weight sit on it and shake yourself and listen for noises 40g prob weights about 334lbs from the pictures you should be fine looks like the stand was made for it

The stand was definitely made for it!! I just don't want a big disaster later on but I think I might be worrying too much...
