I'm upgrading from a 5.5G to a 29G.
But I need to match the existing furniture. So I'm trying to strengthen the IKEA Trofast. I added some metal plates and 2x4 below it.
I imagine the loaded aquarium will weight around 250lbs.
I stepped in top of this (180lbs) and it didn't wiggle anything.
I'm wondering if I add around 300lbs of adults for about 5 minutes is enough to be sure it's safe enough?
