I really want to upgrade my 20 gal to at least a 55 gal tank. My biggest fear, and what is holding me back, is that I don't know how much weight the floor of my main living area can support. I don't want to risk my tank falling through to the basement!
Any way to estimate what can be supported without calling a contractor? What is typically safe?
My basement is not finished and is not usable living space, so though weight bearing would not be a concern there, it would be a wasted investment.
