weight issues?

I'm moving into a new house, its a little old and I guess I'm looking for reaffirming thoughts but will my floor hold my 55 gallon?

It's a lot of weight but my landlord doesn't think it will be an issue. Only one end of the tank will be on a cement wall but it's back is sharing a wall with our kitchen.

No suggestions or help. My stand arrived broken so I'm waiting till Tuesday now.

I guess I will try my 29 gallon first.

You should be fine .... even though it is a lot of weight ... the floor should be able to handle it.

if you have some doubts you can always contact a contractor that specializes in support structures...they can probably give you the best advice...
