Commercially built? I'm trying to figure out if you're building a tank stand or a house foundation

Looking amazing!! Don't forget to poly everything, even the inside, it'll protect everything once you go saltie

Does the plumbing actually sit up against the back of the tank? You should still be able to run a frame under the entire tank without it getting in the way that would def be a custom frame but those angles are gonna make for a lot of extra work
