Can a 30 Gallon stand hold a 38/45 gallon tank?

I have a 30 gallon stand (36 x 12), and the 30 gallon tank, 38, and 45 from AGA all have the same footprint dimensions. Is it possible that it can hold a 38 or 45? I am leaning towards a 38, but in case there was no 38 at any local store, then a 45.

I sure dont know. It would probably depend on how sturdy built the stand is. The 38 is 64 more pounds while the 45 is almost 121 more pounds. I would almost think that stands are built to hold whatever tank that`s footprint is the same size but I dont know for sure. Might want to wait for someone with experience.

That`s a pretty sturdy stand. It looks like it would hold the extra weight IMO

I would go with the reco that the stand can hold whatever fits the footprint. Unless it says somewhere on the stand that there is a weight capacity.
