Yes fuge, phone corrects spelling.

Weight shouldn't be an issue. I have never heard of a tank going through a floor. People are fat, have waterbeds and gun safes, the floors are made for it.

I had a bedroom on the second floor with a queen size waterbed and 10 fish tanks.

Don't think you need a skimmer for fresh. Don't quote me though cuz I'm not a freshwater guy

Skimmers don't work in freshwater. Freshwater doesn't allow for the size bubbles needed for a skimmer to work efficiently. The only exception I have ever seen is in a store that did a lot of koi which are routinely kept with a lot of salt (at least at wholesalers and retailers). The salt is enough to allow for bubbles small enough to effectively skim (and the cost of the koi in one stock tank being in the tens of thousands makes the investment in the 6' tall skimmer worth it).
