So I built this new stand designed for 20 gallon tanks. I got it at PetSmart on sale and I rushed hime built it. I went through all the trouble of draining my tank into 5 gallon buckets, and BY MYSELF, I lifted the tank and placed it on my new stand...TA DAAAAH!!!!
PROBLEM: The stand designed for 20 gallon tanks is not long enough!!!!
So my question here is...how safe is my tank on this stand? I centered it so it has an even overhang of TWO inches on either side. I feel both dumb and angry about it. I should've looked at the dimensions before buying it, but angry that it said it was designed for 20 gallon tanks (apparently 20 gallon HIGH tanks)
Is this safe? It's been on there a week and so far no leaks or stress showing on the glass, but I am afraid the weight overhanging will cause a stress fracture.
