Decided to add more support/weight spread to the shelving unit with my tiny tanks.

Before & after:



Putting one on each shelf to better distribute the 26lbs per shelf for the 3gal tanks (rated for something like 270 per shelf) - including under the tank that's already there.

It's MDF that I primed, sealed twice and then coated with foamy rubber non-slip grippy bits.

No, I wouldn't do this with heavier tanks.

But I enjoy the new aesthetic of my three-tier tank rack with these new additions.

Gonna put a 45-F on top (or maybe a custom acrylic frag table I've got - 10" x 20" x 6" rimless).
