  • Do you have small kids? I think I would be more comfortable with it on a desk. JMO.

  • As long as the desk is sturdy and can hold the whole tank then it should be fine. I do like stands that have the cabinet because you can keep all your fish supplies underneath of it. The desk will be fine though as long as it's sturdy.

  • Keep in mind water weighs about 8 pounds a gallon and with the gravel plants and filter you have to figure on about 10 pounds of weight per gallon of water. So at least 290-300 pounds.

  • If you can get a stand made for that size tank it would be the best...like at walmart! I have a 50 gallon and a 30 they both have a stand made for them .
