Good to hear you feel better about it.
I'd have to agree with everyone .. nothing to worry about ... but a rider on your renters insurance is a good idea. Not from the tank buckling through the floor ... I would think the floors of new construction apartment building should easily hold up the weight of up to 200gal aquarium. I would even guess the floors/ceilings may be made of concrete slabs instead of wood beams and floor boards.
The "bigger" concern would be the tank just bursting open
... as remote as it may seem ... it's always a possibility ... it's my biggest messy tank nightmare
