90 to 125 gallons, what is the weight?

I would like to buy a 90 to 125 gallon tank for my basement. It has a concrete floor but it also has ceramic tiles, should I worry about the weight?

Hey Komodo,
1 gallon of Reverse Osmosis water weighs approx 8.3 lbs
1 gallon of saltwater weighs approx 8.55 lbs

90 - 125 gallons of fresh water weighs 747 lbs - 1,037.50 lbs

90 - 125 gallons of salt water weighs 769.5 lbs - 1,068.75 lbs

**remember this doesn't include the weight of the tank or equipment**

As long as there is concrete underneath, you will be fine. I worry about tank weights too, so I am glad you are considering it before you set it up. Basements with concrete are ideal for these larger tanks, so you are good to go.

I hate when you ask a simple question and people give off facts and statistics that really do not answer the original question. I think that is why so many fish keepers get frustrated in the hobby. Just answer the question, and if you do not know, then move on.

So what?! a smarter answer would have been...with a concrete subfloor the tank will be fine..

Maybe you should use a bit more tact and stop getting irritated. This type of attitude is not what we need. You gave the criticism in one post and that is enough. Please use reasonning and constructive criticism not personal attacks.

55 Gallon- Empty
125 Gallon- CKF and Tiger Oscar
220 Gallon- To come...

Why? That was my only post by the way... why confuse the op with all that cut and paste nonsense. It's utterly useless and I can't stand it..
