      What kind of tank?

      Acrylic or glass. For glass you'll need support around the perimeter of the tank. For acrylic you'll need a flat surface across the complete footprint of the bottom of the tank. No humps, so ensure it is level. I'd put one more crossmember at the middle from front to back, (if it's acrylic) so there would be any change of sagging/cracking. If glass, good to go. Level it good before filling with water.

      Saltwater tank- give it a good prime & paint. Skimmers, sumps, refugiums are big evaporaton sources.

      Good luck, post pic's

        Nice job on the stand dedfish. I'm partial to powder coating for a couple of reasons. One, it's better. Two, this time of the year it's hard to paint unless you have a good heated place. I don't. My powder coater is only one mile from my shop so that makes it easy.
