If Byron doesnt have a basement and is on a solid base under the tank, its no problem, but for that setup to be used on a house that doesnt have that solid base(2nd floor, 1st floor w/ basement), it could pose a problem long-term if the floor is not reinforced.
It's only a problem when bubba steps up to the tank fer a closer look at yer fish
