Today finished the frame for my 140 gal aquarium stand, and I was thinking about adding casters.

stand measures 6 feet in length by 2 feet depth, it has 6 4x4legs, and I was thinking on screwing the casters there.

Would it be a good idea?

the only thing i would watch for is making sure the casters wont break
that tank if going to weigh close to a ton when full and the last thing you want is for your tank to fall

NO, not a good idea. Id use those magic mover things, those discs. I got em under mine so I can move my tank if needed.

I see, I can get casters that when six are combined they can withstand a ton and a half, but they are ungainly big.

you can put em down before the tank is full or during atleast a 50% water change. I was able to lift my tank enough to get em under it after it was full, It also leveled the tank out too.
