You want it to sit on something but ideally you want it to hang from tangs that are screwed to a support bracket. If you sit it on something make sure the strips are wide and still allow water to pass under.

You do not want to pour foam around the aluminum tank. The moister will corrode the tank. If you are set on foaming then coat the tank with coal tar epoxy befor installing.
