My girlfriend and I are looking to purchase a larger tank, but don't have very much space in our apartment. Our only real option at the moment without selling off a bunch of our furniture to make space is to reinforce our besta burs tv stand to support the weight.
We are thinking of getting a 55G tank.
Our thoughts for reinforcement are L brackets in the center storage area, at each level, plywood for the bottom and back with an X brace of some description. does anyone have any thoughts on whether or not this will work?
here is the tv stand:

WE KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE RECOMMEND NOT USING TV STANDS, HENCE REINFORCEMENT
