Can my table hold it?

How can i make sure my table can withstand more water? i have a 5 gallon right now and I am going to be upgrading to a 10 soon.

Depends on your table. 10g is over 80lbs of water, plus the extras.

I wouldn't imagine any solid table giving out from a 10 gallon tank, maybe a particle board one. Do you have a picture of the table in question?

Looks like particle board with no center support, I'd be leary of it myself. I agree, sit on it and see if it flexes or gives way.

putting a board in the middle would help just like you got on the sides there
