nails bend lean on one side does it move? I mean really lean on it
nails don't make it structural
it's like building a house it needs to be able to hold a load
hate to see it stand one min

l l than go like this / / another than ____ the next
see what I'm saying

just understand I don't want to sound like a ball buster
I'm just concerned it will topple over
big mess lots of lost $$ and time ect
if it wobbles in the least it wont hold for long
those brackets wont do anything for structural support you do know that right

We held it on a corner and pushed and it didn't budge, it really is stronger then you think. I'll try to get a picture

No i appreciate your concern, thats why I'm on here. I just think if you saw and messed with it in person you'd understand.

yes you used 5 1/2 inch nails I understand that but do you realize driving a nail up into a 2x4 how it actually weakens the board it will split and crash over time it will not hold the weight
Ive been there done that

I'm not trying to be the guy that asks for advice then doesn't take it but I'm confident about this. I'd gladly take your word for any input or advice on the tank itself when its ready though!
