Stand length

Hi i,m planning on upgrading my fw tank from a 5 gallon to a 30 gallon ( got two mollies, guy af lfs said they wouldnt grow :s). I have a.good stand which can hold it for sure but the length of the stand is like 0,3 cm shorter then the aquarium. So thats 0.15 cm on both sides. Is this a problem ?

Thnx in advance

.15 cm isn't going to make any difference, if it was 15 cm I would be concerned. Isn't .15 cm, 1.5 mm (just confused by the use of a decimal in a system that is designed to be used without decimals LOL).

While I don't think it would be an issue I would err on the side of caution and put a piece of plywood on top. I actually like a larger stand because then you can keep your food and supplies on the outer edge.
