As long as the 2x4 go the short way and you put them every foot it is more then enough to support 5000 lbs plus my doors are 2 and half foot wide so enough to get the dump in.

this one doesn't have overflows, i'll have to drill them and i'll probably redo all the silicone seals as well

I wouldn't go crazy on the seals unless he did them himself. If they are factory seals I would say leave them. They do it everyday and no offense but are prob better at it then me or you.

it was a custom built aquarium, but remember the silicone drys out over time weather the factory does a better job or not they can eventually still leak

They do but not if there has been water in most of the time. If it has been in storage for a long time then yes do them but if not I wouldn't worry about it.

Most silicon has a 30 yr life span so unless it has been stored in an extremly dry enviornment it us most likely fine.
