CalmedByFish Posted November 17, 2021 Share Posted November 17, 2021 @meadeam's thread got me plotting: My tank will be a max of 350 pounds when full. The footprint is 35x15. My kitchen counter has 1 spot where the footprint would fit. The whole 35" can be over supports, but not the 15". Looking at the 15" side, a full 4" would be on a overhang, rather than above a vertical support. That means: 1/3 of the tank weight would not be directly over supports. In other words, as much as 117 pounds on the overhang. This is the 1" thick acrylic tank made by the dude who made Murphy's tank. It will not break. BUT could that stress compromise the counter? (I'm renting, so this is not my counter to break!) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
