Hello frenchy. I'm new to the building a rf myself and lol I'm giving advice but I guess this is what the site is everybody helping everybody. You can google Felton's there is a calculator that will tell you a lot as far a measurements etc I'll try to copy and paste if someone doesn't beat me to it. Good luck

Hello Frenchy. My fb will be 34x34x34 1/4" thick. My tank well is just a propane tank about a 275 gallon

Reason I made fb so big is my circ is 30" thought it would help to fill in and as I've read doesn't hurt to be a little big lol
