Bought this 130 gallons Peninsula tank. The stand was not strong enough to hold the 1000lbs + weight. One side at the middle is too high, the other side is too low. Between 1/8" -3/16". That maybe the reason the tank was leaked at one top corner.
So I reinforced with 4x4, 2x8, 2x6, 2x4. All the woods I can find at my yard. Now the stand probably weighs 4x as before. So much stronger now.
Hopefully strong enough.
