I currently have a 10 gallon standard tank. I'd like to upgrade slightly to a rimless tank at 17 gallons. The current stand fits my standard 20" x 10" x 12" perfectly. Can I place my new 23.6 x 11.8 x 14.2in tank on my original stand? It will overhang slightly, http://www.greenleafaquariums.com/glass-rimless-aquariums/rimless-aquarium-60-l.html.
But that wouldn't cause the tank to break or anything right?
Thanks for any info! :smile::smile:

my cabinet was to small for my 75 gallon, I used a couple of 2x4s at the back and screwed them in.
You can do the same, or you can put a piece of plywood under the tank ( the more expensive one)

A 2x4 or something similar cut to lengths a bit wider than the tank will work fine. I haven't measure recently but I did the same on a 10 gal.tank using 1x2x8 furring strips. Used only 3 strips to support. Its been years and no problems.
