I'm potentially getting a 270 gallon aquarium and I have a couple of questions/concerns and was hoping someone here may be able to help. The dimensions are 72"L x 36"T x 24"W. once it's all full with water and all deco and stand it would probably be close to 3500 lbs. it would be going on my second level in a 4 level backsplit home meaning its below grade on a cement floor. With that amount of weight in such a small area could it damage my foundation or floor in my home?
Wow, that sounds like a monster aquarium! Your concern is a good one, I would recommend you have a professional contractor check out your flooring to make sure it won't come crashing down. Best of luck with this build, please post some pics when you have it up and running.
