I'll go with attempting to find the plans and getting them looked at before I do anything. I am almost positive a large apartment complex like mine wouldn't even allow a 55 so I can't risk them finding out I just need a knowledgeable person on the subject to help me ok it lol. I'll keep you all updated with either a sweet 110 gallon setup or sweet hole in the floor set up either way good for you guys.

Wow... going to do it without permission, huh? You do realize that if anything - and I mean ANYTHING - happens you're going to be financially liable for any and everything associated with a single drop of water coming out of the tank... right? I mean, even if a PE tells you the floor plan is safe, but the tank breaks, or you spill a bucket of water... you're going to find your behind in court quicker than you can spell l-a-w-y-e-r. Water damage is a really expensive thing to fix - especially if you're dealing with it going through multiple floors.

You can tell by the shape of the roof. The trusses of the roof will run perpendicular to load bearing walls. A wall that separates one apartment from another for example would most likely be a load bearing wall (if it runs perpendicular to the trusses).

That is what I figured, and is where my 55 is currently located.

Don't worry friends the research will be done before any moves are made. I will consult a professional. I plan on examining my lease. If aquariums are not covered I will purchase appropriate renters insurance just to be sure. Also, the aquarium I have likely won't be ready untill this summer.
