I built a 40" tall one for my 30g long (3ft) tank. I hated bending down to look at my fish. Now I kind of wish I would've made something a little smaller since I have to stand on a chair to reach the bottom of the tank.

I agree with the others, secure it to the wall. I anchored mine to the studs in the wall in two places at the top of the stand. I was a little concerned about tipping with it being 40" tall and only ~18" front to back.
