Aquarium stand for a 20 gallon?

Can the typical 4 drawer fake wood dresser hold a 20 gallon tank? I can take pictures if necessary.

If it is laminated particle board, the answer is no, even for a 10 gallon. I have a 5 gallon on mine and even then it's not so safe. I think it's bowing but it might just be my worried eyes. A water spill will weaken fake wood considerably and I have a glass top on mine

That's about 170lbs.... Personally, I would not do it.

It's the dresser from when I was little so I'm not taking any more chances with it than I am the fish. It sounds like I'm going to have to turn it down for the reason of having nowhere to put it even if the boyfriend doesn't veto it...
