Craigslist. Took me about a month of diligent searching. However, there is a piece of plastic from a reptile lid melted to the top rim to the aquarium (the craigslist poster said the previous owner used it for reptiles and somehow melted part of the reptile lid to it. It doesn't affect the use of the tank, except for having to angle the lid in a bit to get it to fit, but it is really sharp and has cut my arm a couple times already when cleaning the tank initially, so I'm probably just going to go with the 10 I have instead.

I assembled the stand today though, and feel confident it will be fine with a 10 gallon.

They probably melted it with a UVB light if it was for reptiles.

glass aquariums are designed to only be supported on the 4 corners. so ideally you want the corners to line up with the 4 legs. However since it's a small tank, probably won't be an issue

But that's why prefer for my stands to be open on the top as it is less likely to create uneven pressure points on the bottom glass panel
