Can I put a tank on a smooth concrete floor without anything under it?
Nothing over a 40 breeder would be set in this manner, I just got a bunch of tanks for really cheap and I am lacking stands for the smaller ones.....
Yes I know to do the 'wobble test' to be sure its smooth relatively level spot.

I usually put a layer of styrofoam under the tank.
helps insulate and helps with leveling out.

Concrete will suck the heat out fast.
