75g safe to do?
I really want to do the biggest tank possible. I live on a second story in a fairly new home. My ideal tank im looking at is a 75g salt water setup. If im correct iam not on a load bearing wall. Would you put this setup on a second story?

you dont have any walls below you that you can put it against? regardless you should be alright but im a fan of being safe then sorry. for this reason i added an extra beam below my tank which it didnt need but ofcourse didnt hurt. it was also very easy to do because the basement is getting re-done anyways.
how big of a sump are you planning? where are you going to put the RO/DI unit? this may make for having to carry buckets or tubs of water up stairs.

i dont have many options. i live at home with my parents and my room is on the second floor. I would love to add extra support beams but i doubt my parents would want them in the kitchen/living room lol. I just found on craigslist a 75g oceanic tank with everything for salt water for 350$ its a steal just not sure if its safe to do.

You are probably fine, but we can't speak to the spacing of the support beams in your home.
