Stand weight


Recommended Posts

The concrete blocks will be fine, of course. It is the two-inch thick board you need to be concerned about. If the aquariums are long enough so that they extend over the blocks or very close to the blocks, that is good. If not, the board has to bear a lot more weight.

75 gallons of water is about 625 pounds, plus the aquarium itself and the net weight added by the substrate, you might be talking in the neighborhood of 900 pounds or more for each aquarium

I am no engineer and I have never built a stand. I recently had my floor reinforced so that I could have an 100+gallon aquarium on the second floor of my house, so I am probably over-cautious.
