Alot of weight - should I use padding?
I am setting up a 150 gallon tall, and I am a bit concerned about the amount of weight that will be in the tank once full. I guesstimate that the weight of the stuff in the tank will be around 1400 pounds. (1600 pounds if you include the tank itself) This is not totally accurate as I guessed on the weight of some things, and counted the water at being 150 gallons without subtratcing the water that would be displaced by the hardscape.
I am wondering if I should place some kind of pad under the tank to ease the weight stress a bit, and wondered if I could put some sort of pad IN the tank that I could sit a 60 pound rock on.
Any advice would be appreciated.
