1 Attachment(s)
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.

The top is made out of corrugated cardboard so I wouldnt trust it to hold a tank but good luck with it

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

I have the same table and have stood on it before. No worries!
