We're only talking about 160# aprox. 3/4" mdf or plywood would be fine for that tank. I would coat it with varthane or similar and put a lip around it to keep it from slding off.

To add to the lip on the top, I would add a lip on the bottom, to keep the board from sliding....

After you fill the tank with water, it's not sliding anywhere. I did have a lip on top of mine, although I made the whole thing too big and ended up filling the gap with decorative marbles. I made the lip tall enough to cover the plastic stripping on the tank, for astetic reasons.

The tray also came in handy when needing to move the tank. (I was in collage, went home every summer and took my tank with me.) I didn't have to worry as much about stressing the tank during the move, as it was always going to be supported on all edges.

I dont think its that bad... I setup another tank this week the same way. Does your stand have a lip that holds the tank in place? Mine does have that. Also, it looks like its fine from the front and back,if it was hanging all around Id not keep it. The lip is important.
