Smaller tank on a juwel stand, safe?

Picture attached. Is this smaller tank safe to use on this juwel stand? I'm worried since it doesn't reach the side panels going down, and there's no centre support in the stand either. Also being a juwel, the top board is not great quality, could it start to sag from the weight being on it and not reaching the sides?

Is it wood or particleboard? What about the top?

The top at least is just particle board, which mainly worries me

If the sides are wood, then you could always attach a board/ boards to the top to strengthen it for piece of mind. Better water repellent too. Of course, you could bolster the sides from the inside too
