I have a table (which I'm pretty sure is pine) in the front entrance of my house with my 10gal on it. I'm wanting to put a 8 gal tank beside the 10 but I'm not too sure if I trust it. Wanting some opinions.
Thanks

The app keeps crashing when I try to up load pics so I will try again later.

That's going to be somewhere around 150-180 lbs. Most solid wood tables (if it is made of pine) would be able to carry that weight with no issues in my opinion. I might revise the opinion once you post a pic

Oh, that thing looks plenty solid. I wouldn't worry about it carrying the weight.

I wouldn't worry about it at all. Looks very strong, sturdy and solid. And it even has center braces.
