refugium on top of canopy ????

Ive been trying to contact a couple glass aquarium companies cant get no answers. I have a 75 gallon all glass tank . I want to place my refugium on top of my canopy . There will be a total of about 150 pounds including canopy. Do you think the tank will support this ok??

Thanks in advance

Yes, I think the tank can support it, bt I have doubts about the canopy. Even 2X4 will sag
