So I got a 55gal tank off CL
, ended up having to reseal it cos it had a leak. Currently doing a leak test (At the couple inches of water in the bottom stage.) I was thinking, and realized that all my other tanks are on wire stands, and the one time I had a tank on a flat surface (a table) when I finally moved it there was mold&mildew underneath (From spilled water doing changes and whatnot).
I've got some sections of wooden 4x4 I could put under the edges of 55 gal
, so it wouldn't be sitting flat on the stand and could get some air circulation underneath and dry any water that creeps under. If the 4x4s are under the entire front and back long side, and the short sides have like 6 or 8 inches of unsupported open area (cos the 4x4s will come in a few inches of course), will this be ok in a full tank? Or does every inch of the trim need to be supported for a secure tank?
