Unless the bottom is cracked or something (at which point you have bigger problems) you should feel free to go nuts. Make sure everything's on a solid stand. Water is REALLY heavy. Given the dimensions of the tank, you probably couldn't fill it with enough rock or wood to cause the bottom to break out.

Just make sure it's on a solid stand.
