Thanks for your replies and suggestions. The purpose for the bulkhead is for a drain that will go into my sewer lines. I have turtles that require frequent water changes even with a filter system. That brings me to the reason for the ceramic tile. It will raise the bottom above the bulkhead so when I drain the tank it won't leave a layer of sludge on the bottom. (Maybe I shouldn't try to seal it?)

For support of the bottom I was thinking of putting ten blobs of silicone on a plastic sheet, four around the bulkhead and six at evenly placed points under the rest of the tank, and then I'll place the tank down on top of it. I'm hoping this will give some support and still be slightly flexible. Or should I just forget about adding extra support?
