I am shopping around for a 4 ft x 2 ft x 3 ft aquarium tank. Most shops in my area sells Acrylic cabinet and even the support frame is made from Acrylic (indicated by red arrows). There are pictures from various angles attached. So now I am worried if it can withstand the weight of substrate, rocks, other decorations, etc.?🤔 Also this type of design, is it still recommended to put a self-levelling mat as the tank is rimless? Please let me know if you think its ok for me to get this type of aquarium cabinet or I should keep to either MDF, Plywood, Solid Wood or Aluminium. Thanks
My aquarium broke yesterday. I had him on a very heavy stereo furniture with just a yoga mat underneath.(they don't have aquarium mats that had my size in my area) when I went to my local fish store I could not find an appropriate tank size for my fish. So I had to order online and decided on a 60p Ada tank. When I talked to the shopkeeper of the store he said it probably broke due to pressure points. Since the crack is where my heavy stones used to be he could be right. He said as long the area it sits on is clean of dirt and is very stable you don't need to put an aquarium mat under it or even use a towel. Now since I made a big investment in Ada I wondered if he is right and if not if there are other possibilities? Like the yoga mat or I've read that mouse pads are fine too. I want to hear you guys opinions on what to do?
