i wanna upgrade my 120gal tank to 180gal.but now i worry about tank weight.
can my apartment hold up a 180gal tank?
I should say back in the day(way back! Lol)when I was about 15 I had a 135 gallon on the worst store bought stand in history. It was basically just a sheet of melamine for a bottom , another sheet for the top and basically open in the middle with two doors on each end. So holding it up were 4 small sheets of melamine running vertically (2 for each set of doors) and that was it except for a few melamine strips to connect and provide support. How they designed this stand to hold a tank up was beyond me and just scary but I was just happy to have a big tank at the time lol. As it had gotten a bit wet a couple times the melamine started to swell which worried me so started screwing 2x4 supports to keep it up as it was turning into oatmeal in parts ( the things you do when your broke and like big fish lol)
If its concrete then no problem, but if its on the second floor or higher and wood then you may wanna do some research
