Ok!! So we have an issue! It looks like I will either have to put up some support beams in my crawlspace underneath the office. Either that or my tank plans and my room, will have to be moved into the basement.
This is fine too. Just wished it was on the main level where the family could enjoy it. With the basement there is a HUGE Open Floor Plan!!!! So if I go with the basement it will either be in the middle of the room or as a peninsula. But possibly a couple 100 more gallons. Since I always wanted to be a marine biologist, very low paying job, I want to get the biggest tank my budget and my time can afford. I can afford a maximum of a 400 gallon tank. As far as the long run goes. I will be keeping up with this for many years to come(11th year so far, 4th since I started caring for the tank though
