Just water it's 8lbs per gallon so 1,160 lbs just from water not the tank, the tank is about I'd guess 100 lbs empty so tank +water roughly 1,260-1300 lbs then it you go substrate as if you do a 2" bed, for example I have 60 lbs in a 55 gallon so you'll need about 130 lbs of substrate I'd say max 1700 lbs with just water and tank and substrate on the highest end, 1500 on the lower end.

According to this site, and empty 145 gallon tank will weigh about 330 pounds: https://www.thespruce.com/aquarium-s...eights-1380694
A dolly and perhaps a sheet of plywood might be helpful.
