My parents said the same thing to me three years ago and I haven't had a catastrophic failure in any of my tanks since. (except one time a siphon started in an air line.. but it was minor.) As long as the tank is on a sturdy stand and a sturdy floor you should be fine.

with regards to location of an aquarium can anyone recommend if my tank would be better in a living room rather than an upstairs bedroom? also if leaking did occur, a tank being upstairs may cause more damage?

I wouldn't stress so much about leakage and failure. If you look at the tank and wonder when its gonna break it ruins the joy of keeping fish. Just my 2 cents...

Also I would put it downstairs in a living room so everyone can enjoy it.

Good point PP5. Can you do a test fill outside first with freshwater then empty it and bring it inside. I know it's a pain but worth the effort this way if it leaks you can identify it fix it and re-test it, I did it with my 44 and 120 gal, it gave me peace of mind.
