So i have selected a place to put my 210 g tank. Heres my question .....it can sit on my pergo floor or should i remove the floor to allow it sit on the concrete or maybe even tile under ? Any opinions would be appreciated.

I'm not too sure why that would not work. I actually tiled under mine, but that was because there was carpet underneath.  Just my .02

i would actually contact pergo or someone in that field. i just installed laminate and it specifically called out to not install any cabinets on it... that being said if thats the case, i would cut out the footprint and tile or epoxy the cement.

Perform is basically a floating floor. I would not put a tank on it because the floor needs to expand and contract.

Cut it a 1/4 inch bigger than you need. The floor needs to expand and contract.
