As long as you have solid support all the way around the perimeter of the tank it should be ok, there's plenty of stands that have hollow centers.
I've done the cinder block thing before, and it works, but it's definitely not ideal, and unsightly lol. To help avoid mopping up tons of water, just spend a few bucks and make a stand, you can even use cheap 1x3s if you have it all braced properly.
