The best way to fit odd sized tanks is to build your own stand. I donít trust manufactured aquarium stands so I build my own out of 2x4ís (frame), 1/4Ē plywood (skin), and at least 1/2Ē plywood (top). Level the stand (the part that touches the floor) with door shims once you have your empty tank on the stand, when itís half full, then check level again once tank is at desired water level. Use a hammer to tap the shims level.
Just google ď2x4 aquarium standĒ for plans and execution. Itís super easy if you have a drill and even just a handheld jigsaw. You donít need contractor grade to tools to build an aquarium stand. You could even borrow the help from a friend.
Iím sure others will chime in with other suggestions but thatís how I do it.
