I have done this once. As long as you still have the plastic rim around the
bottom you can get away with it. Without it, it may break (personal
experience- it lastted about three months, then just cracked across the
bottom- the ones with rims were okay). In either case, I recommend the safety
of going to Home Depot and buying a piece of 1/2" plywood. They will cut it
for you for about a buck extra. Stick it under there and forget about it.
The extra couple inches on the ends will come in handy for fish food, nets,
pumps, or whatever.
