30 Gallon on Hardwood Floors?
I just moved into a new apartment and, instead of carpeting, the place has beautiful cherrywood floors throughout. I have a 30 gallon that I need to setup which sits on the stand seen here http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...N=2030055&Ne=2
I'm very concerned about putting the tank and stand directly onto the hardwood floors. Does anyone have any experience with this and is there anything that I should put between the stand and the floor so that it doesn't cause any depressions in the wood? I'd rather not use a carpet/rug under it because it would look awful with the hardwood floors.
Any suggestions or thoughts would be great. Thanks!
You might want to put cardboard in the contact points. I would also suggest being careful with the water changes and such as leaving water to dry on hardwood floors will damage the finish over time.
In general what you are describing is "not a very swift idea".
The link which you posted is not valid.
Without "seeing your setup" I do not know exactly what to recommend but if the stand is "just four legs" I would recommend 3"x3" wooden plates (at least 3/8" thick) on top of carpet "pieces".
you could place small squares of carpet under the corners or rubber lifts. For appearance purposes and to protect the floor from water spills I would go buy a nice decorative area rug to put under the tank.
i got my 90 gallon on my hardwood floor in my house with nothin underneath it. lol
