no thats not a typo in my title. this is a question about my tank stand. i bought them together (tank/stand) but im wondering if my stand can support all the weight of my tank. its a 37 gallon. the stand is 30 x 12 and its made of pine, i think its made by perfecto or AGA. anyway im planning to have at least 45lbs of live rock, plus i have a 10 gal sump underneath the display tank. im getting ready to fill it up but im worried about it being too heavy. i figure the stand would have to hold at least 500lbs safely (37 gal full of h20 is 415, 45 LR, about 6 gal h20 in the sump) anyone know if this is ok or if they have the same setup? should I reinforce it? and if so how?
