You should just trying to build your own stand. I would guess paint, wood and labor maybe $100 and made to you design. Look at the ones being done here. Really srry you had a bad experience with your tank. You can also seal it maybe alot cheaper too.

you could actually look for a piece of furniture also. like a server. you can reinforce it if necessary, and it will look very nice.
you know what i'm talking about, right? something like the bottom half of this-
