I am about to purchase another 150 gallon tank (48"W X 24"D X 31"H).
I was going to silicone some black marble tiles to the back glass.
My question is, this tile, once in place will have a total weight of 61.9 Lbs. What will I need to do to beef up this aquarium/stand/floor/whatever?
My plan is to have black Fiji sand with black galaxy marble tile background for our 40+ African cichlids
The tile will not rest on the bottom glass unless thats better/safer.
Rather, the tile will extend down the back glass terminating 1-2" above the bottom. Any Ideas on how best to do this??
If this won't work, I was thinking of getting about 300-400 lbs of boulders to stack in the tank, to create a natural "reef" for the cichlids. I would have a 1" thick piece of styrofoam to help cushion the edges/weight.
p.s. sorry if its in the wrong forum but its not a DIY
project more a question on what kind of weight a tank will hold.
