Following this...

I am also thinking of a 96"x36"x24" tank (~360 G) for next year.

The consensus I've seen on the RC Steel Stands thread is that you don't want feet unless you're on concrete.

For wood, use the bottom tubing to spread the load, and either level the floor or use a ton of wood/composite shims. The ends of the shims can be cut off.


I've been designing steel tube stands in Autodesk Fusion 360, and my first attempt was a stand that supports 5000 pounds and only deflects 0.12mm.

Also, I have some work to do in the basement, adding more LVL beams to the joists...

If you guys order a tank for me, Could it come with the option to only have the back drilled for one of the various ghost style overflows? Would have have the templates for that or would I need to buy the overflow I want and set it to them first?
Hey I did confirm that I have a few companies that will gladly do a Synergy/Ghost overflow design.

Only one I can name would be Planet. They build their own Synergy or Ghost style overflows I found out. I also have a couple of other options, but these are private custom builders that have to "built" through us.

Most all custom aquarium manufacturers should be willing to make the tanks compatible with third party overflows. I don't know if there are any good direct-to-consumer companies doing custom work, but your lfs will have relationships with manufacturers that can take care of you.
