so i have read alot about the use of styrofoam under a tank, not to balance really, but just to remove some stress off pressure points the tank might have... and to help keep the heat in
its a new 29 gal
, so it has the lip under the tank, where the glass is raised off the surface alittle bit, maybe 1/4 an inch or so. would 1/4 inch styrofoam be thick enough to relieve some stress or would i need more, or less? also how much bigger than the base should the foam be.. getting it exact might in time make it slip under the tank and be less effective and make it uneven
and what about the thickness inside the tank, ill be using around 30 lbs of LR
to start off with, will add more LR
later as well... also what types of styrofoam are ok to put into a tank that wont release or raise any chemicals and or harm any life i have in the tank?
or, should i just leave it out all together? :)
i know some use it and some dont, so just lookin for alittle direction, dont want to do anything that might be a bad thing :)
