55 gallon tank on dresser?
i just recently set up a 55 gallon tank on an old dresser i had. it is a solid built dresser very sturdy/stable, thick wood. it has legs on it, that make it stand 4-5 inches off the ground. i understand that the total weight of the tank with h20 and gravel is close to 600lbs. so after setting it up i realized that this dresser is strong, but is eventually gonna get stressed. and i am super paranoid about it now because the last thing i need is 55 gallons of water on the floor in my new apartment.
anyone with knowledge on the subject, do you think it will hold strong for a while? without seeing the dresser and relying on my word that its sturdy, do u think it will last, and if so, how long until i should buy a proper stand?
im new to the aquarium game, but my buddies have been into it while, as you can see this is my first post, so any help would be GREATLY appreciated! thank you
