I been adding an extension on my home so I can have room for my 300 gallon tank, I have no place to store it in my house at this time so I have no choice but to keep it outside. Now tonight it is freezing outside. it is 3 Celcius or 37.4 fahrenheit. Is this bad for my tank? I am so worried about the tank, I only need maybe a week longer before I will be able to bring it inside.
will my tank be ruined at this temp outside?

For a couple years now i've had my extra 10 and 20 gal tanks out in our camper. It was one ove those trailers that sits in the back of a pickup. lol Just kinda used it for storage. So of course it's unheated and our winters here in IL get really cold below freezing cold. My tanks have been fine.

Don't know if wrapping a couple blankets around it would help or not. Hopefully someone else will chime in but thats my experience. Good luck!

Store it upside down?
+1 was thinking the same

and acrilic can handle very cold temps and very hot temp.
I don't know about the silicone....
