I'll be setting up a jbj 45gallon tank on a quartz countertop. Unfortunately there is a seam from where the two quartz slabs are joined together. Is this a concern? I was thinking of placing the tank on a custom cut cutting board to ensure any minor shifting at the seam wouldn't effect the tank.

This is the cutting board. Thinking 1/4 inch, but they have 1/2 inch too.

I would not be concerned. If it is seamed like ours the pieces are glued together with epoxy. They will not move.

Yeah i think JTL is right.
Unless they did a bad job putting the counter on then it should be fine.

Consider putting neoprene between the tank and counter

The JBJ did actually come with a thin piece of neoprene. I think I'll use that or perhaps get something a bit thicker. Thanks for the suggestion!

Good point on the epoxy joint...it should be strong enough to not move. The neoprene should handle shifts long enough for me to notice the joint coming apart.
