Yeah heh i figured bout 1000lb for water, 60-100lb sand (not sure on that) 250lb live rock, maybe 50-100lb for the tank itself, lands right around 1500lbs.
Is there a cheaper solution for buying a stand? Or it is kind of the same deal with the tanks, where its most cost effective to buy from the lfs
? I havent even started looking at tank stands... and i'd rather not have a metal one if I could afford it.
edit: just saw MTs post.... wow forgot saltwater weights more! yeah that puts it at more around 1750lbs. Add a 30 gallon sump and its equipment, were looking at 1 ton. At what point do I need to worry about the floor giving way? lol
edit #2... OK after thinking about it... now im actually seriouly worried about that weight. Im in a 2nd floor apartment, I dont think I can just put a 2000 lb thing any ol place.
