You would really have to ask your landlord. No two of our homes are likely to have the same structural support. You would have to know the age of the building, where the joists are and have intimate knowledge of the sub-flooring.

If its a modern apartment, you should have no issues provided you don't set in on a stand with feet. If you can determine the location, its best to run perpendicular to the floor joists rather than parallel.

Just depends on how well the building is built. But if it does damage the floor you might be responsible for damages...and that could get expensive. Look over your lease very carefully.

That is a good point, if you put a big piece of wood under the stand it would distribute the weight more evenly. But that would permanently flatten the carpet.

The problem is I live on the second floor. But the complex or cheap build with cheap wood. I just asked the landlord he sad it's a no no. The floor woint support it. A 55g is the biggest tank that can go in these apartment. There goes my plan. I doint want to put my jd,s and gt in a 55g -
