Ikea Expendid as a stand?

I'm new, so I can't post a link, but I was wondering if anyone has used the 4 cube Ikea expendid as a tank stand? I have the TV stand and it is VERY sturdy.

Hey, copy and paste the address into your post and we should be able to view the stand you mean...

When you say the big one which one are you referring to? and do you just have a 5 gal on it? or a bigger tank and a 5gal? 5 gal tanks don't weigh all that much..

Just the 5 Gallon - and mine isn't on the top of the furniture, it's on one of the shelves. If you're putting it on the top it should be able to handle a 20 gallon tank (I would think), but I wouldn't even put a 10 gallon on the shelves.

If you can actually go to an Ikea, you can sit on it and see how sturdy it feels.
