Will my bedroom floor hold my tanks?

Hi.

I have-
-2 foot 7 inch tank = 91 ltr
-3 foot tank = 106 ltr (think I calculate it correctly)

2 stands - Dimensions 3 foot long x 40cm high x 40cm wide and weight around 60-70 kg for both of them together.

Just wondering if the floor will hold?

I can't get under the floorboards to see what size joists etc but I can see what way the floorboards are laid.

One thing I know is where I want to put them, they'll be running parallel with the joists.

Can anyone help please?

Many Thanks

Are you upstairs, or down? I doubt you'd have any problem with anything under a 4 foot tank. They get a lot heavier from there up. My 110g has 200 lbs of live rock, and with water weight its around 1500lbs total. Its like having car parked in the living room. No problems yet though.
