got a new tank... weight issue?

hey guys, so my 29 gal was bowing and my wife didnt want to take the chance, nor did I , so we went and got an all-glass 37 gal(comes with a center brace). Here's my question: it's got the same dimensions as the 29 , but it 22 inches tall instead of 18, so it fits on the stand I already had.. a perfecto , black, wood, single door.. do you think the extra weight (8 gal) will be an issue? hope not

8 more gallons = more fish! right doopy!?

I miss my fish..
no tank

The lack of additional water is good for keeping things stable, however since you did not gain any more of a footprint, I would stock it as if it was a 29g. Most fish are territorial side to side, not up and down.

The weight should no be an issue, Perfecto makes a similar tank (they call it a 38X) and they reccomend their 30x12 stands for it. Obviously, check to make sure you are putting the stand on a flat level surface.
