Looks good to me. If you are concerned about it you could always place a few 2x4's on the inside for support.

I don't see any kind of support beams. All there is a hollow rectangular base with a frame on the top portion of it to place the tank on. There is no table top, you see inside of the stand looking from the top.
Here is the setup I bought:

You can see how the stand laminate is kind of peeling apart at the corner on the left.
It does seem sturdy though.

Since you found some warping on the top you should look at the support structure to make sure that there are no problems there. If there are no problems with the support structure I would say it ok. Keep in mind you can always replace the table top.

I bought my 125gal tank with a composite wood stand. And yesterday as I am dusting the stand off, I notice that at the corners of the stand near the top, where the tank sits on the edge. The wood is like a bubbly or warped probabaly due to water falling onto it. Is this a possible problem in having the tank sit on there when it is full? I am always skeptical about the composite wood stands, but I still decided to buy it. Can there any problems wtih this warping of the wood? Has anyone with these kinds of stands have any problems, or they just as strong as the regular wood stands?
