Setting up and leveling 125g
I've read many conflicting opinions on the net about how to property setup a tank of this size.
Brand new Marineland 125g
Used homemade stand painted
1960's built house (built strong)
The stand is going to sit across 4-5 trusses, in the center of my house, right on top of the steel beam that runs across the length of my house. I'm pretty confident that the house should support the weight of the tank but I wanted to see what your reactions were.
Also, starting 4 inches from either end, the stand tapers off downward by 1/16 to 1/8. Essentially creating a hump in the middle. Is this enough variation for me to be worried about or do you think that the variation is so small it's not gonna matter?
