Most of the pine stands just have an open top. They only support the tank around the trim.

I noticed that as well with the 55s, you might just save yourself some frustration and build one yourself. The 55 stand I have is a table-top as well. You could always punch some holes in it though, wouldn't be hard.

If i put a couple holes in the top, would it still support the weight?

yup, just dont drill through the parts that are right under the rim of the aquarium, thats where most of the bracing is. Just drill a large enough hold to poke your bulkheads through and get some tubing on them.If you are worried, slap some 2x4's in there around where you drilled.
