Thanks David, yes I did make it. I still need to do a few things on it. The lid is warped and it needs doors.
kyle jackson » posted 2007/11/22 12:50 pm
did you wind up having to brace the floor?
Aaron B » posted 2007/11/22 01:00 pm  
No, I called a friend of mine who is a general contractor. He helped me with my house when I moved in. (I had to replace the sub floor in a few places) so he was pretty familiar with the construction of my house. He said that the 2x6 tongue in grove floor with plywood sub flooring is "stong as hell". He said not to worry about it as long as there is a 4x4 right undernieth the tank which there is.
kyle jackson » posted 2007/11/22 01:07 pm  
thats cool, less work gettn it up then. just checkn cuz most people with raised homes dont even think to check if floor is stronge enough. tanks lookn good, gunna be awsome when finished.
Aaron B » posted 2007/11/22 01:10 pm  
Thanks Kyle. I almost didn't think of it either but once I brought the stand in the house and saw how big it was I started to worry a bit.

COOL TANK.
Can I ask u a question.
I'm planning to get a 125+ gallon tank and I want to put it in a room with wood floors. Wat would you recommend I put under the stand to help distribute the weight of the tank.

any help would be thankful.
John Young » posted 2007/11/25 12:09 am
Nice Tank!

G.Kim,are you planning on buying a stand or building one?As long as the tank is 180gal or under you shouldn't have any problems.(as long as the floors have no prior damage or anything)
Juan Damelines » posted 2007/11/25 12:25 am
