Does bottom of stand need to be touching all the way around

Postby Sherry0 on Wed Oct 04, 2017 9:07 pm

Bought a 125 gallon locally. Great deal on everything but curious whether the stand will be an issue ....Where the end of tank and middle brace are it seems there was more force pressing down... so between the middle brace the bottom trim of stand is "warping" up where there is less pressure.
Any opinions ?

The stand should support all four corners of the tank otherwise the seals will be under constant pressure and will fail someday. Some people put a foam insulation sheet under the tank between the tank and the stand so that the weight will compress the foam and the whole tank will be supported.- mark
