should be fine if you use thick enough wood or pull your rack apart and make it wider by moving the side braces (if possible)

my pallet racking already has a tanks on the bottom it would be hard, what about i put some 3x2 horozontaly and then put the tank on that, what do u think will it work, they are good tanks for large fish

thanks

That's more or less what I did with my pallet racking. The rack is about 80cm wide and my tanks are only 60cm. I put timbers across (every 2ft or so), then plywood on top, and styrofoam. It's been running for the last 7+ years or so...

IMHO, as long as the rack is level, strong enough timbers, you should be ok.
