Ikea bench for fish tank

I am looking for something from Ikea to serve as a fish tank stand (60 litres, 2 feet tank).

Currently, I have found this MOLGER Bench, https://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/20241452/,



Apparently it can hold 100 kg.

Will this be suitable? I don't mind it is short, in fact I prefer short height ones..

If not, any other alternative? Thanks.

Because it wont be cost effective for them to buy small quantities of fishes from their suppliers, they have to buy in bulk and take all the risks.

How much utility bill will rearing fish add monthly? Assuming fish tank equipped with proper equipment like pump, light.

depending on the size of the tank.
if you are using MH lights and chillers for planted and marine tanks, it can cost quite a bit.

Why still go MH , there are loads of LEDs Plants Lights or LED Floodlights with correct lumens and spectrum for planted setup.

And also
Most of the time they dun feed those fishes and spam salt
Before fishes die of any sorts they get sold so the risk is most of the time transferred to buyer.

Have you tried sitting on it?
I did. It's wobbly and gives out cracking noise...
Go lfs buy wrought-iron stand.
Or look around for second hand. Nowadays they even have those self assembled type that comes in flat package.
