I like Dave's rule, but I have also had tanks set up taller. At my last house I had a 37" tall tank on a stand that was about 32" tall. I would make sure that the stand is very sturdy, and possibly even attached to the wall if there is a concern about tipping forward, but things tend to stay in one spot once you add the weight of the water to the aquarium in my experience. It's also nice to have a tank that can be comfortably viewed while standing.
