Inexpensive IKEA nano stand...

1 Lack side table ($9.99) and 4 Vika Adils legs ($3.50 each) for a total of $23.99. I put my new Aqueon Evolve 8 on it.

They're screwed in pretty tight and I think having the legs so close together helps with the stability.

This. There is nothing to these tables. An 8 gallon tank might be pushing it. Good Luck. If it holds together, nice stand!
