Stand slightly too big for tank?

Hey there guys, we're in the process of setting up a 29 gallon glass tank and we wanted to get a stand that was slightly bigger than the tank itself. I totally spaced on the physics involved in supporting the weight of this thing, and while the front and rear edges line up, there's about a 2.5" space between the sides of the stand and the edge of the tank.

Is this going to be okay with such a small tank, or is this a deal breaker for the setup? Any information/suggestions are fully appreciated.

Thanks for your help

Hard to say without seeing the tank and tank, if would be a very well made stand that has enough support side to side to handle, but if it a flimsy stand may not. What material is the stand made of, Solid wood, particle board?
