If your floor joists run parellel to the tank, extra support is a good idea, if they run the opposite way to the tank, you will be fine. I have both a 125 and a 135 gal with no problems.

Is the background part of the tank? I mean is it painted on? If not you can paint the background any color you want.

That does suck, but small price to pay for an awesome tank!
