looks good. I think I would have put 4x4's across the entire bottom sides and front and back....And I hope you aren't leaving that 29 on a tv tray once its filled I don't think they can hold over 300 pounds

the blocks are supporting the iron crossbars, which is supporting the corners of the tank. from what i've researched, only the corners of the tank need support.

I saw the thumbnail and my heart stopped like "I have that TV tray and it will not hold an aquarium!" lol Glad to see the tank was empty when I enlarged the photo.

You're exactly correct the pressure points of a tank are mostly on the corners and the corners are on the iron wrought iron cross bar it's it's it's a nice fit here

Yeah I painted the back of the tank royal blue on the TV tray that's why it's on there
