Question Appropriate Table to Support 64 Litre Tank

I've just purchased a 64 Litre tank, it is the Love Fish 64 Litre aquarium to be exact. Now, the stand that come with the tank is incredibly cheap looking and extremely low to the floor and is just unsuitable for the space I'd like the tank. However, I do have a solid wood table that I was hoping I could use to support the tank but, I'm unsure how I would be able to tell if it was suitable or not. I would post a picture but apparently I need to post more in order to post links and images. It is a very typical table design with a flat top and four legs.

Re: Appropriate Table to Support 64 Litre Tank

64 Liters is 141.09 pounds, or 64 kilograms. If you are heavier than that (add tank weight, plus substrate weight, plus decoration weight to the lbs/kg), sit on the table and wiggle around a little bit (don't try to damage the table, but try to get a feel of sturdiness). If it supports the weight, it will be fine. If you don't think it is sturdy when you are on it, first get off the table, then don't use it for fish tanks

Currently setup (down to 20!):
8x 10g grow out tanks + 1 microcrab tank
1x 20g female crayfish tank
1x 20g Endler tank
2x 20g long crayfish breeders
1x 29g breeder for Mosquito Fish
1x 29g blue crayfish growout tank
1x 45g tall Super Reds
1x 55g Wife's Shrimp tank
1x 60g Platys
1x 75g Super Reds
1x 75g + 20g long sump Cats, Pickerel, Bait, and Punkin

Waiting for room:
4x random <5 gallon
12x 5g
15x 10g
1x 17g
2x 29g
2x 55g
1x 75g
