What is holding up the edges of the tank? If the edges are just being supported by the trim piece around the top I wouldn't trust it to hold 500lbs. Those trim pieces are usually just there for looks to cover up the bottom trim of the tank. They're probably just tacked to the actual support structure and not meant to support weight.Tank is up!
Went a little over the budget so I couldn't pick up rock. I did end up picking up an RODI unit, I think mine is called Barracuda. I still need to figure it out, but I plan on adding water on Tuesday. all the plumbing went smoothly (I hope).
The stand is a little too small for the tank, and it doesn't fit completely into the top opening and is sitting on the sides. I think it'll be okay because this is how it was in the store, but could be a problem when I get water in it.
also, I forgot to buy a thermometer, so if anyone has the link to a decent one ill need to order it.
Really exited to join the salty side!
Its tough to tell without looking at the stand, and I could definitely be wrong, just please be careful!
Edit: I looked at some pictures and it looks like those aqueon stands might designed to hold the weight like that.
