Now It's not possible for me to change it with a new stand, for now I can only upgrade it.. Can I use it for 12-13 month and change it with wood stand?

How are you planning to move the running tank from one stand to another stand?
Thanks,

This tank is going to be a cichlid tank (for my maa and dada's demand). After one year if I shift it to a new stand, it will be not an issue because I have extra tank to shift my fishes for 2-3days..

Hi Dev,

It's always better to be safe than sorry, I think this stand will not be able to support the weight of your tank after whatever additional measures you take.
If required wait for sometime to make a better stand, use this stand for some other purpose.
People do consider about the strength of the floor for such size of tank, so pls don't think this stand will support it.

A mad idea ... Ask 20 of your friends to sit on that stand for 10-15 minute which roughly adds about 1500 kg of pressure and see how the stand is holding ...
