Sorry to bring this thread back to life, but I recently bought a 32 gallon bow front tank. I am going to put it on top of a Malm dresser. I plan to put a sheet of plywood on the top of the dresser to reduce the bending of the partical board on top. I may also use some 1x6 planks I have and cut them to fit behind the dresser to secure to the new plywood. I know your saying why not get a stand? It came wth a stand that is really low to the ground. I wanted the tank up high as the kids in the room have bunk beds and can see it really well.
Thoughts? Any would be great. I had a 10 gal on that dresser for years. Now that our fish had babies, I wanted to get something bigger for them to cruise around in.
