Query on Aquarium Stand

Unread postby rajiv.mcks » Wed Jul 15, 2015 3:07 pm

Friends, I'm getting ready to set up a new 32gallon tank ..it will primarily be a planted tank. I got the carpenter to make a iron stand for this tank. It's welded together using 1.5inch hollow cast iron rods of 1mm thickness. it has a 3/4 inch ply board on top. Have attached pics below. My question is if it will be able to hold the weight of the tank without damaging the floor. Much appreciate your suggestions in this matter.

The tank dimensions are 28"x 15"x 18". ImageImage

Its thikness is only 1mm? Please ask again to carpainter about thickness of the iron.

The rods are hollow inside, the thickness of the metal is only 1mm. It looks quite sturdy .. but not sure if it can hold 450kg of weight :(
