I just got this 50 gallon tank and I decided to set it on my entertainment center. It doesn't appear to be stressing the wood or anything and I am well aware of the weight of this tank. Anyone else think this will work or have used a stand like this?

With the way it's braced in the center at two spots and the legs are right under the center braced sections, I think you'll be ok.

Looks like a nice alternative as a stand.

The only thing I'd have done differently is to center it on all sides so that the weight is spread around equally.

I was trying to get as many supports under it as possible so I put it on the end so the end support would bare some of the load as well
