would an 40cm tank look stupid on a 60cm long stand?

i have a 35litre arc tank, measuring 40cm x 34cm (lxw) and i need a stand for it, it is currently on a coffee table, but needs to be moved, i am wanting a black cabinet, like the fluval roma 90 cabinet, which is 60cm long, but i was wondering if it would look stupid, being smaller than the cabinet..

got any ideas?

it's what's inside the tank not what it sits on. ;)
It'll look fine mate, don't worry.

Well it's ultimately for you to decide mate - you're the one who's gonna have to live with it. Personally, I would prefer the cabinet to fit the tank dimensions but some people wouldn't mind so much.

ok, thanks guys, well i dont see where i am going to get a 40cm stand, so i spose i will just have to get the 60cm instead.. has anyone had this stand? do screw holes show up on the surface so that may be seen by the parts not covered by the tanks base

thanks

As Aaron said the visible fittings are on the side not on the top surface. ;)

You can get black plastic screw caps to cover any screws from most DIY stores

Get a handfull of powder fine sawdust and some pvc glue and mix it up till you have a horrible pale stiff gunk. It's the worlds best filler. ;)

I think you'll struggle to find a black wood filler, I don't think they're all that common.
