Default Commission of 10ft x 4.5ft Tank

4) Stand Setup

Per design, there are 16 vertical legs of 2"x2" steel stand (cross section shell thickness 2mm). These no of legs are of paramount important to provide a level plane for loading of 4 tons (water-3 tons + tank - 750 kg + hood- 100kg + lightings, Ohf, arylic cover etc- 150kg).

Following is the view from rear.
It is lower than front view to faciliate ease of servicing and fish feeding.



There is marine ply of 10ft x 4.5ft x 1" thick above the stand to facilitate load distribution.

Another view from front.
The tank was positioned between the steps in the form of partitioned setup. Thus to provide required high front view and yet provide a low rear area for servicing/fish feeding needs.
