How much support do you need for stand?

Trying to figure out how much support is needed for my 24g nano cube? I believe I looked it up and weighs about 200lbs and its 20x20 so how much is the weight per a square inch/dispersion? I always get worried filling

I always freak out when filling, I also have a weight limit in the room my tanks are in so filling is always stressful. From my experiance if the stand is designed to hold that size tank; just thouroughly inspect it and if it seems stable then your good to go. Solid wood or metal is much better than that particle board garbage..
