What is the weight recommendation for a 75gal tank?

My 75gal All Glass brand is sitting on a well made flat surface cabinet. I got about 100lbs LR/BR, and 140lbs LS/BS(3") in it now. I am adding another 45lbs fiji LR soon. Will the total weight be too heavy on the tank especially the bottom glass? TIA

You will be fine, the LS distributes the weight for you.

I forgot to mention that the BR is laying directly on top of the glass bottom, and not on the sand. I did it this way so the rocks would not shift over times.

That is the ideal way of doing it. They will shift, and if you have, or plan on having triggers, they will move the rock around. I didn't believe it until I saw it. Amazing. Even my huge hermit crab moves them every now and then.
