We have a 40 gallon, and had that same problem. Buying stands are
expensive, and unless you spend big money, they’re ugly, too.
We used to have our tank (which holds no water- just hermit crabs,
so it’s lighter than one with water) on our hutch. It hung off the
ends by about 2 inches on both sides, and left the hutch cluttered
and pretty much unusable.
When we moved last month, the tank was put on the floor pending the
purchase of an ugly metal stand for $60-70. The day we went to go
shopping, I stopped in at Salvation Army for a bit, and found an old
sturdy coffee table that looked like it would be the right length,
and wider than the tank by a few inches, for only $10. I picked it
up, and it turns out, it’s half an inch too short on each side, but
it’s only 2 inches wider than the tank, and fits perfectly against
the wall without leaving a huge chunk of floor or wall space taken
over by it.
It fits great, and has leaves that drop down (to make it an oval
table) that cover the front of the table, so we store the food,
water conditioners, etc, under the table out of view.

anyone have any ideas on what we can put to hold it? It’s going to
be in our family room but don’t want a huge bulky table or
something. Thank you
