Have you ever heard of a tank furniture combo collapsing?

I purchased a 104 gallon tank that came with its own furniture stand. It is made of wood. Iím no engineer so I was surprised that this wooden stand will hold the massive weight of the tank. The store clerk said that he sold many of these aquarium setups and never heard of the stand collapsing. So I am curious, have you ever heard of a manufactures tank furniture combo collapsing under its own weight?

I haven't, if yours does it would cost the store big time, so hang on to your receipt, a 104g weighs around 59 stone.........

Suprisingly enough, many of the tank/stand combos in the big box stores are made of MDF, they don't even use actual lumber.

Quite scary jet, if MDF gets wet it gets weak, I am afraid it's all down to cost these days and not quality.......
