Re: [Killietalk] 20 gallon fish rack
Keith - I've done it both ways, but it makes sense to distribute the weight
load as much as possible, so dividing it among four frames puts less stress
on the tank. I failed to mention I keep my stuff in the basement on a
concrete floor. In a wood-frame house, the strongest location in a room will
be a corner.
