How to test fill new tank?

I want to test fill my 200g tank but I"m not sure exactly where/how to do it. I would assume it needs to be somewhere very level so it doesn't twist or bend with all the weight. Can I just set in on the grass in my yard or should I set a couple 2x4's running the long way down the tank? I'm just afraid the tank may crack if it's not sitting flush on the ground.

I would worry about that too. I would probably set it on it's stand in the driveway.

I didn't build the stand yet, it will probably be a few weeks until the stand gets done. I'm just anxious to fill it now, but maybe I'd be better off waiting.

Better off on a garage floor then grass, grass isn't all that stable.

A good thick piece of carpet or something similar should work.
