Well,
For about 9 pounds per gallons, so you looking at about 1000 pounds with the tank and water alone.

I am not sure if your tank has standard dimensions, but here is a link that can give you some idea, since the tank will be very heavy at that size, even when empty.

BTW, I am not sure how accurate these numbers are, but it will at least give you somewhere to start.

I bought a 120 allglass and the specs said that it was 240lbs dry!!! and over 1200 with water. I built my own stand using 4 solid oak 4x4's as the corners with removable 1/2" side panels. A 3/4" middle support, a 3/4" base piece with another 1/2" piece of oak combined for the top. I ended up spending about $180 dollars for the whole thing, and get compliments on the stand and hood constantly. Why drop tons for a pre-made when you can do it for at least half the price?

If you are to buy the stand for 120Gals from your LFS, I will image it runs for about $400, I kindda have doubt about those stand, wouldn't trust it over home made it.
