Plywood is suggestion for acrylic, no buffer. Glass is a different story. Ignore the false statement below, but I left it for reference.

Original Post:

I think yoga mats, thin ones, work well too. But yes, a hardware store should have thin foam. I think Bulk Reef Supply used some mat in their 52 weeks of reefing series on YouTube. May be worth checking out since it was a HUGE acrylic tank like this as well. One of the first episodes is them setting the tank on the stand. It is a good chunk of information.

I couldn't find an answer when I googled, I got a bunch of DIY tank builds. Someone can fill you in on why a buffer is preferred.
