I was thinking of that. I have 190lbs total though, and my fish are doing well. I cant add anymore because my parents are scared cuz its on the 2nd floor. Its connected to a 20 and as stated has 190 total. 130 in tank 40 in 20g and 20 in the sump. And yes about how to improve. I plan on adding many more corals also.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
you will remove water in order to add rock. it's not going to be a lot heavier.
That's not a lot of weight IMO.
I had a 125 with a 75 gallon sump directly underneath it for a couple years in a second story apartment.

Uhm if this tank has the stock listed on your profile, id say this would be a terrible idea.

Add more rock, i like your scape already and it would look extremley cool with another arch going off to the sides which are a bit bare imo.

Are your rocks stacked, or glued?

Stacked. And why would that be so terrible????? I dont get it................ its an aggressive reef. I left the sides open for the fish so they could swim (bird wrasse and yellow tang) since the tanks not very wide.

No not all apartments have metal supports. It all depends where ur tank is located if it is right above a load bearing wall u will be fine but if you aren't then be carefull.

Well most of the fish you have arent reef safe. Im not sure how well that'd work out if you added expensive corals.
