125g tank storage

I'm gonna be picking up a brand new 125g tank this week and won't be setting it up till probably Feb or March. I was gonna store it out in my shop which isn't heated unless I'm out there working. Would it be OK to store out there or should I keep it inside in my basement where it will stay warm?

I wouldn't leave it in the cold if avoidable.. it would probably be fine.. just give it a couple days inside to acclimate prior to filling.

The cold, especially freezing can impact the silicone seals by aging them or causing cracking. I would keep it in the basement if you can. Set it on some towels to avoid scratching and you are good to go.
