The house I'm living in now was built a little over 100 years ago, I'm told that may be good or bad. Good because most houses were build much stronger back then, bad because it's it's an older house. Anyway, my 110 is find on the second floor however I"m looking to put a 150 in it's place but am worried about the added weight(would love a 180g but that probably is really pushing it.) A good note is that my current tank is 4ft and the new tank will be 6 so the weight will be spread out a little more.
So from what I can gather the tank itself will weight 300-350lbs plus 1-2 inches of sand, 180lbs LR
, probably 120g of water, hood/lights/stand and probably a sump/fuge around 50g.
Does anybody thinkI will have a problem, should I have a contractor come look at my house, I'm assuming they would have to tear up a couple floor boards which wouldn't make me too happy because they are hard wood and I don't really want them damaged.
