DIY 90 Gallon Tank Stand- Styrofoam/Cork?
So...I am planning on building my first DIY tank stand for my 90 Gallon aquarium this weekend with the help of my father (he is the woodworker of the family). I have been reading about many people using styrofoam or Cork between the Tank and the plywood (plan to use a 3/4" piece across the top of the stand) to help with any "imperfections". Since my tank is a glass tank, and sits inside its plastic frame, is it safe to lay a sheet of rigid foam/insulation or cork that is 1/2-1"thick? I am worried that the tank will sink into the insulation/cork and cause the glass on the bottom of the tank to withstand pressure it normally would not......can anyone offer some insight for me?.......Thanks!!
