Is my aquarium strong enough for this rock?


I have a big rock I want to add to my 20 gallon aquarium. I have no concerns that it will change the water chem (tested same type of rock from same area earlier) but I am not really sure how strong the pane of glass is on the bottom of the aquarium. I estimate the rock weighs about 25-30 pounds. I also have a few other rocks in it, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Thanks for your help!

the weight of water is more then the rock so you should be alright. just be careful placing it in there and remember it will displace some of the water.
