Best options for under a tank.

I have a 150 gallon salt water tank.
I am set to move to a new location with hard wood floors.
Is there a good option for cushioning for the tank to prevent scratches and water damage to the wood floor?
My main goal would be to get as much if the tankoff the floor as possible so that I can prevent water damage since I am renting.
I went to Home Depot, Lowes, several flooring stores in town with no success.
One individual suggested a mat with holes that restaurants use to allow for better drying.

Does anyone have any experience in this area?

I have hard wood floors. How long are u planning on staying. An area rug would protect the floor for several years, provided you made an attempt to be vigilant with water issues.
