40 breeder on 40 long stand?

I'm looking for a stand for my 40 gallon breeder and I found a decent deal on a 40 gallon long (55 gallon dimensions) stand. Would it work if I were to put a board under the tank to support it? Or do...

Well, I have clear and obvious eyes on at least 5 of the eggs. No mistaking that.

Okay! I put the eggs in water on Thursday. No hatches yet.

BUT:
I can see eyes on most of them!

I'd think that because of the smaller dimensions of the 5 gallon that would be easier for the fry to find their food. That way you wouldn't have to feed as much and end up with as much going to...

If they appear in mid air, I'll go for it.

Joking aside, still... I don't want to go bigger; I need small for the babies. Maybe if the babies live to be adults I'll do grindals. I've heard that...
